The BBC points out that the black market of organ donation is booming, even though authorities banned it in 2007.

Zheng reportedly responded to an online ad offering money for organs. An operation was arranged illegally at a hospital, and the boy earned $3,392 for his trouble, with which he bought an iPad 2 and a laptop. His mother alerted authorities after noticing his new toys and a red scar on her son from the kidney operation.
