Organ Traffickers
posted:

For a weighty Bloomberg Markets story about multinational criminal gangs using intimidation and violence to get poor eastern europeans to sell their kidneys.

What was crazy was some of the complicit doctors in the story, so I included them in the roughs.
Gangsters, a former Ukrainian kick boxer in this case, search for people willing to sell a kidney for $10,000 or less.
They sell the organs for 15 to 20 times what they pay, profiting from misery of the gravely ill and poor.
The most heartbreaking part is when they only pay the poor people half what they promised and often their health is wrecked.
