'Brylcreem' and '30 plus' codes for money transfers

'Brylcreem' and '30 plus' were some of the codes used for monetary transactions between Pakistan's snooping agency ISI and Kashmiri propogandist Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai, who was arrested by the FBI recently here.

In the affidavit submitted by the FBI, investigators said that Fai's Pakistani handler Javed Azeed Khan asked him if he had received all the goods. In reply Fai told him that everything has been received except "Brylcreem, 75 milligram".

FBI investigators suspected that this was a code for the transferring $75,000 demanded by Fai from his ISI-handlers for running Kashmiri propaganda in the U.S. through his Kashmiri American Council unearthed by the American probe agency.

Next year, Fai used different codes for demanding money from another handler Ahmed and this time it was the famous brand of energy casule "30 plus". FBI believes that "30 plus" is a coded reference for supplying $30,000 for Fai.
