THE THEFT OF KIDNEY


One of the scariest urban legends was also one of the first to spread like plague with the popularization of the Internet, including in Brazil.

It would have been created in 1997, when an e-mail began circulating warning for the new and terrifying crime happened in some cities on the planet.

The victims at the beginning of the legend, were tourists or people traveling on business. At some bar in town, a stranger or a beautiful seductive stranger pulled conversation, inviting the visitor to go to a place more peaceful and offered a drink. Soon, the victim became dizzy and fainted. Waking up hours later in a bathtub full of ice.
Next to the bath, a phone and a note: "Call the emergency service immediately."

Terrified, the people discovered a large incision in their back. Their kidney had been surgically removed to be sold on the black market of organs.

The panic has reached the point that health agencies of the United States mounted a campaign asking victims of murky coup to make contact. No one called. But the story yielded a short film that is still circulating through the network.
