Profit for Organ Traffickers

According to law enforcement reports from around the world, organ traffickers generally sell a kidney bought on the black market for 15 times to the recipient.

Most organ traffickers purchase a kidney for $10,000 and sell it to the patient who is receiving the organ for $150,000.
