UK: 7 Muslims Arrested For Financing Jihad By Defrauding Seniors

Six men and a woman arrested by police investigating ‘cash for Jihad’ cold-calling scam raising money for Syrian terrorism

Seven people have been arrested over an alleged ‘cash for Jihad’ scam in which Islamic fanatics cold-call unsuspecting pensioners to bankroll terrorism in Syria.

The six men and one woman were held today after raids by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command on six properties in London and one in Luton, Bedfordshire.

According to investigators, who launched the probe in March, the extremists masquerade as policemen before calling their victims and claiming their bank details have been compromised.
