Sometimes you’ve just got to trick the people you love into taking vital organs.
Imran Najeeb offered his sick mom his kidney. She suffered significant damage to her kidney and both were only functioning at 25%. Mom obviously refused because “moms” and because she didn’t want her son’s life to be affected in any way.
So Imran came up with a plan, a RIDICULOUS PLAN, but a plan none the less. It worked. It involved eBay.
Bank manager Mr Najeeb, 34, then told his mother he was already donating his kidney anyway – and was selling it on EBAY.
Mr Najeeb then took advantage of the fact his mother doesn’t speak good English and showed her a picture of a kidney he got from Google – and told her it was his.
He told her: “Look mum – I’m selling my kidney on eBay and someone’s going to pay me £10,000 for it.”
His tactic worked when mum Zainab, now 52, replied: “Why would you sell your kidney to a complete stranger when you could give it to me?”
The pair have now undergone their respective operations and are recovering well.
I’m sure she’s a wonderful lady but COME ON! You fell for the oldest trick in the book! The “I found this kidney on eBay” trick. I’ve pulled that one a million times. I’ve even done it with other organs and human beings. It’s how I explained my illegitimate son to my wife.
“No seriously, I found him on eBay. Look!”
