WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Maryland citizen has received money from a fictional organization through fake deals on eBay's famous eBay site to fund terrorist attacks in the United States, US investigators said on Tuesday.
The FBI said in an indictment that Mohammed al-Shennawi, who was in his 30s and was arrested last year, was running fictitious operations to sell printers on the e-auction site to fund possible operations in America, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
The report pointed out that it was part of an international network that used these methods to fund the organization, led by a leader in Damascus, Saifol Sujan.
On December 30, 2015, the US Department of Defense announced the success of a US air strike in the killing of Sujan, one of the most prominent Internet pirates, near the city of Al-Rigga.
A US jury has charged a Bangladeshi young man living in Maryland with trying to kill a federal employee and trying to provide support for a joking organization, the Justice Department said Tuesday.
The ministry said earlier this month that a man from Ohio had pleaded guilty to providing material support to Daish, noting that he sent $ 250 in January 2016 to one of the organization's members and expressed his commitment to his idea.
