According to the FBI, 30-year-old Mohamed Elshinawy received nearly $9,000, which he thought came from the terrorist group, to finance an attack in the United States.

With the money, Elshinawy reportedly bought a laptop, several pay-as-you-go phones and paid some personal expenses.

Elshinawy told investigators he was just trying to scam money out of the terrorists.
