Xiao Zheng of the Anhui province met a broker on the Internet that claimed he could sell his kidney for $3,000. In late April, Zheng traveled to a hospital in Chenzhou to make good on this transaction by having his right kidney removed! When Zheng came home with the two brand-new Apple devices, his mother was naturally a bit inquisitive. Upon finding out how her son acquired enough money for the tech, she called the authorities, but they were not able to locate the broker. Astoundingly, the hospital which performed the surgery was not even authorized to do organ transplants! And what’s worse, another broker said kidneys were normally sold for much more across the country - typically a sum of $5,400, plus a bonus of $300 to $1,500!
