Facebook users in Britain offer to sell kidneys for £20,000

Metro - People in Britain are so desperate for money they are selling their kidneys on Facebook.

They travel abroad to undergo black market operations – often in India, Pakistan and China – and are typically paid £20,000.

Their willingness to go under the knife was highlighted by a newspaper reporter, who discovered a Facebook page for buying and selling organs. He posted a message – posing as the brother of a woman who needed a transplant – and within a week had received 11 offers.

The story is too old to be commented.
