Kidney Donor Scam/Racket from India


Unread post by Garrett » Sat Jul 18, 2020 6:54 am

Kidney Trading is illegal in India yet there are countless ads offering large amount of money to entice people in need to sell their kidney. Some are simply Advance Fee Fraud from Nigerian scammers living in India, other ads are from criminals involved in the Kidney Trade including some connected to certain hospitals. Both types are a losing proposition for individuals who want to sell a kidney because either you lose money or your health, there's a good risk of not being paid once the kidney is removed. India police have arrested both Indians and Nigerians.

Exploiting such scenarios comes naturally to some fraudsters on the lookout of some quick money, as was discovered about a couple of months back by the Fortis Hospital authority who came across an advertisement on internet which used the logo of the institute and read “GENUINE ORGAN DONOR NEEDED URGENTLY FOR AN ATTRACTIVE PRICE OF 1.70 CRORE, CONTACT DR. IAN HOFFMAN OF FORTIS HOSPITAL ON MOBILE +919585147058, EMAIL –
The hospital authority,needless to add,was clueless about the advertisement and lodged a complaint with our Cyber PS.
The phone number shared in the advertisement was not of much help. Nor was the website, which was fake, with the server stationed abroad. The e-mail ID that the advertisement carried provided the basic lead in pursuance of which the investigators, after months of painstaking effort, could track the fraudster in Bangalore. David Uzma Ubah, the accused , is a Nigerian citizen who had duped quite a few, exploiting their immediate need for organ transplantation. Our team headed for Bangalore and arrested David with seizures of his laptop and other electronic devices . He has been brought to Kolkata for further investigation. ... 961743.cms

INDIAN POLICE SAY they have arrested the suspected leader of an illegal organ donation racket run out of one of the country’s top hospitals.
T Rajkumar Rao was arrested in the eastern city of Kolkata late yesterday on suspicion of leading a criminal gang that lured poor people to sell their kidneys, which were sold on for huge profits.
The commercial trade of organs is illegal in India and the gang forged documents to pretend the donors were relatives of transplant patients in order to undergo the operations at the Apollo hospital.

Five staff at the Apollo hospital have also been arrested.
