The money was then wired to ISIS accounts to  used by the extremists in the Middle East to fund their reign of terror.  Three covert payments were made through transfers using third party names to Khan and Nijjer also used money she raised to buy chargers for iPads and smartphones, solar panels, flip flops and boots which she was going to send to Syria.
