Black markets in organs for transplant surgery are not a monopoly of developing countries like Pakistan and the Philippines, it seems. The recent arrest of a New York dealer in illegal organs has exposed a world of shady deals in the US. Levy-Izhak Rosenbaum was caught in an FBI sting late last month, along with a number of other people accused of various forms of corruption. He allegedly planned to buy a kidney from an Israeli and sell it to an American patient for $160,000. Prosecutors said Rosenbaum had boasted that he had brokered "quite a lot" of transplants over 10 years. This could be the first documented case of trafficking in the US.

Its terrible that people do these types of deal, it should really be cracked down on more heavily. I would consider this worse than the drug trade.

Im sure this is big business as well.
