This website is completely reprehensible! I am a renal patient who is looking at about a 5-6 year wait for a kidney, so I am always on the Internet looking for someone who is looking to donate a kidney to someone like me. Anyway I stumble across this site, which basically promises more likelihood of a quick transplant to people who need transplants.
So I sign up and make an ad thinking it is free (which by law, is the only way to run a service like this one), only to find out just as I am about to finish it is now "as little as $97 a month". So basically this website is profiting off donor organs, which is highly illegal.
And all this while pretending to care so much about how many people die waiting for a transplant. But it's clear they only care about money because their victims are expected to pay monthly to keep their ad on this site, even if no kidney is ever found.
These are the e-mails I got from these shysters after I found out they were going to charge me $97 to have an ad on their site for a month.
