Metro- Three young women from Chechnya managed to con two Isis recruiters out of $3,300 (£2,100), which they planned to spend on a long holiday.
The terror group had allegedly reached out to the girls’ social media account and asked them to join their cause.
Instead of turning them down, the trio remained in touch with militants and even sent them fake pictures to keep them interested.
As soon as the money was wired to the girls’ accounts, the communication stopped.
‘I don’t recall any precedent like this one in Chechnya, probably because nobody digs deep enough in that direction,’ police officer Valery Zolotaryov told a local Chechen newspaper.
‘Anyhow, I don’t advise anyone to communicate with dangerous criminals, especially for grabbing quick money.’
Members of a radical terrorist organization have trouble talking to women unless the women are being paid handsomely to interact with them? Who knew? With the state of the dating game being such a war zone I thought their cool headed, down-to-earth approach would really translate. Shame on me for thinking a group that prides itself on navigating sensitive situations with such finesse would have at least a little bit of game to fall back on. At the very least I thought they could keep their tab under four figures. Jesus Christ guys, have a little respect for yourself. You start paying $3,300 for a couple DM's and you slide yourself right out of the market for real, physical contact. Especially with the freaky, violent shit you guys are in to. I would imagine that doesn't come cheap, even for the most experienced "professional". Probably why they took the money and backed out. Can't really blame them for getting cold feet at the prospect of being beheaded on video. The thought of that could make the wettest Chechnyan pussy dry up like it was left roasting in the Russian sun.
Well, now that we picked the low hanging fruit I guess we should get to ISIS' marketing tactics. It appears someone is in need of a little rebranding. Hell, organized racists don't even have a recognized logo anymore and you don't see them shelling out over three grand for a couple more supporters. I know you only get out of the business what you put into it, but I think the cost-benefit analysis seems slightly off kilter with this move. Adding a few women to ISIS? What's next? Female NFL coaches? Come on ISIS. You need to enhance your reach to the target demographic before you start worrying about the peripheral groups. Three young women aren't going to do much for the reputation of an Islamic terrorist organization. You guys don't even let women acknowledge their own tits and now you want to bring them on board to expand your brand? That's like the KKK starting a heavy Hispanic push. I applaud the progressiveness, but the business savvy could use a major overhaul. Focus on the irrationally angry, sexually frustrated male Jihadists, and any woman that comes along with is just icing on the cake. Got to imagine that's a better business plan than taking the bait of some internet fraud and having a couple professional criminals end up as prized catfish.
