Chechen girls beat IS at their own game

Moscow, July 30 (IANS) Police in Russia’s predominantly Muslim Chechen Republic have arrested three girls, who tricked Islamic State (IS) fighters to send them money for travelling to Syria, according to a media report.

The girls used to meet IS recruiters online and pretended to be eager to go to Syria. The only obstacle, they said, was the lack of travel money, which the recruiters were often willing to provide, RT.com reported on Wednesday.

The girls would simply cash the money sent through anonymous electronic transfers and then delete the social media account used in the con.

The trio managed to swindle $3,300 from the recruiters of the radical group before they were arrested by a Chechen police unit monitoring online activities for evidence of crimes.

Chechen Republic is a prime target for IS propagandists, who regularly call on young men and women to join their cause in the Middle East.
