FBI: ISIS used fake eBay transactions to send cash to U.S., WSJ reports

A recently unsealed FBI affidavit alleges that a global financial network run by a senior ISIS official funneled money to an operative in the U.S. through fake eBay (EBAY) transactions, The Wall Street Journal reports. The recipient of the funds was allegedly an American citizen in his early 30s who had been arrested more than a year ago in Maryland after an FBI surveillance operation found clues to the suspected network. A spokesman for eBay says the company "has zero tolerance for criminal activities taking place on our marketplace" and said that they are working with law enforcement on the case. A PayPal (PYPL) spokeswoman says that it "invests significant time and resources in working to prevent terrorist activity on our platform....We proactively report suspicious activities and respond quickly to lawful requests to support law enforcement agencies in their investigations."
