Long Island woman allegedly used Bitcoin to fund ISIS

“The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced yesterday that a US citizen, Zoobia Shahnaz, has been arrested and charged with sending funds to the Islamic State (ISIS). Shahnaz, a 27-year-old resident of Long Island, New York, has also been charged with ‘bank fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering and three substantive counts of money laundering’ — all in the service of the so-called caliphate. Prosecutors have cast suspicion on a trip she made to Jordan in 2016 and also alleged that she had a longstanding interest in ISIS propaganda.”
