Online Organ Transplant Broker Charged With Wire Fraud
Date:3/19/2009

d of liver failure at a Philippines hospital without receiving a transplant.

Doctors treating the husband told the victim that nobody at the hospital had ever heard of "Dr. Mitch Michaelson" and that the doctor identified by "Dr. Michaelson" would not have performed the transplant surgery, as the victim had been promised.
