I am what you might call a "matchmaker," said Levy Izhak Rosenbaum of Brooklyn, USA, in a secret recording with an FBI agent he thought was a customer. Ten days later, at the end of July this year, Rosenbaum was arrested in connection with a large tangle of corruption uncovered in New Jersey: rabbis, elected and trusted officials had for years engaged in money laundering and illegal organ trade, which now rolled up like a Sopranos network. Rosenbaum's matchmaking was allltså not about romance, but about buying and selling kidneys from Israel on the black market. By his own admission, he buys bodies from the needy people in Israel for $ 10 000 and selling them to desperate patients in the U.S. for 160 000 dollars. The legal waiting time for kidneys is an average of nine years.
