blisticle6 Desperate Kid Sells Kidney To Pay Online Gaming Bill10 Signs That They’re Your Best Friend

These games and apps are no joke! This isn’t the first person I’ve heard of who accrued a debt from addicting games. It’s pretty easy to do.

We don’t have a lot of details on this story, and it took place in China, so there aren’t many LEGITIMATE news sources to confirm it.

But thought I’d share it anyway:

There’s an 18-year-old named Zhang in the Chinese province of Gansu, who racked up a HUGE bill buying video games online. Somehow he ended up charging $3,255 worth of games.

And when he couldn’t pay off the debt, he came up with a solution . . . Zhang decided to sell one of his KIDNEYS.

He found a buyer on the Chinese black market, but whoever bought Zhang’s kidney got a bargain.

Zhang sold his kidney for $6,510, but the going rate for a black-market kidney in China is about $47,000.

That seems pretty weird, so some people think this desperate idiot’s online gaming debt was a little more like an online GAMBLING debt. But no one’s sure.
