The attached document appeared in my e-mail inbox. Do you guys thinks
it's true or pure fabrication? Is there really a black market for body
organs and is this story likely true or false? Any feedback is
appreciated.

Thanks,

===============
This guy went out last Saturday night to a party. He was having a
good time, had a couple of beers and some girl seemed to like him and
invited him to go to another party. He quickly agreed and decided to go
along with her. She took him to a party in some apartment and they
continued to drink, and even got involved with some other drugs
(unknown which). The next thing he knew, he woke up completely
naked in a bathtub filled with ice. He was still feeling the effects
of the drugs, but looked around to see he was alone.
He looked down at his chest, which had "CALL 911 OR YOU WILL DIE"
written on it in lipstick. He saw a phone was on a stand next to the
tub, so he picked it up and dialed. He explained to the EMS operator
what the situation was and that he didn't know where he was, what
he took, or why he was really calling. She advised him to get out
of the tub. He did, and she asked him to look himself over in the
mirror.

He did, and appeared normal, so she told him to check his back. He
did, only to find two 9 inch slits on his lower back. She told him to
get back in the tub immediately, and they sent a rescue team over.

Apparently, after being examined, he found out more of what had
happened. His kidneys were stolen. They are worth 10,000 dollars
each on the black market. (I was unaware this even existed)

Several guesses are in order: The second party was a sham, the
people involved had to be at least medical students, and it was not
just recreational drugs he was given. Regardless, he is currently in
the hospital on life support, awaiting a spare kidney.
