True or Not

  1. True or not, please read on..

    This is a true story, it has been confirmed, the
    Medical Centre phone number at the end of this story
    is real.
    This is why you never want to drink or pick up someone
    on a night out again........
    This guy went out on a Saturday night a few weeks ago
    to a party. He was having a good time and had a couple
    of beers and some girl seemed to like him & invited
    him to go to another party. He quickly agreed &
    decided to go along with her. She took him to a party
    in some apartment and they continued to drink, & even
    got involved with some drugs(unknown). The next thing
    he knew, he woke up completely naked in a bathtub
    filled with ice. He was still feeling the effects of
    the drugs, but looked around to see he was alone.

    He looked down at his chest, which had "CALL 000 or
    YOU'LL DIE" written on it with lipstick. He saw a
    phone was on a stand next to the bathtub so he picked
    it up & dialled. He explained to the EMS operator what
    the situation was & that he didn't know where he was,
    what he took, or why he was really calling. She
    advised him to get out of the tub. He did, and he
    appeared normal, so she told him to check his back. He
    did, he found two 9 inch slits on his lower back. She
    told him to get back into the tub immediately, and
    they sent a rescue team over. Aparently, after being
    examined, he found out more of what had happened. His
    kidneys were stolen.

    They were worth $10,000 each on the black market.
    Several guesses are in order:

    The second party was a sham, the people involved had
    to be at least medical students & it was not just
    recreational drugs he was given.

    Regardless, he is currently in the hospital on a life
    support, awaiting a spare kidney. The University of
    Sydney in conjunction with the Royal Prince Alfred
    hospital is conducting tissue research to match the
    victim with a donor. I wish to warn you about a new
    crime ring that is targeting business travellers. This
    ring is well organised and well Funded, has very
    skilled personnel & is currently operating in most
    major cities around the world and recently very active
    in Sydney.

    The crime begins when a business traveller goes to a
    lounge for a drink at the end of the work day. A
    person in the bar walks up as they sit alone and
    offers to buy them a drink. The last thing the
    traveller remembers until they wake up in a hotel room
    bathtub, their body submerged to their neck in ice, is
    sipping that drink. There is a note taped to the wall
    instructing them not to move and to call 000. A phone
    is on the small table next to the bathtub for them to
    call. The business traveller calls 000 who have been
    quite familiar with this crime.

    The business traveller is instructed by the 000
    operator to very slowly and carefully reach behind
    them and feel there is a tube protruding from their
    back. The business traveller finds the tube and
    answers "YES".

    The 000 operator tells them to remain still, having
    already sent paramedics to help. The operator knows
    that both of the traveller's kidneys had been
    harvested. This is not a scam or out of a science
    fiction novel.

    It is real. It is documented and confirmable. If you
    travel or someone close to you travels, please be
    careful. Sadly, this is very true. My friend's husband
    is a Sydney EMT and they have received alerts
    regarding this crime ring. It is to be taken very
    seriously. The daughter of a friend of a fire-fighter
    had this happen to her.

    Skilled doctors are performing these crimes! (which,
    by the way have been highly noted in the Brisbane
    area). Additionally, the military has received alerts
    regarding this.

    Not true, I've heard it many times and I believe it was in a Playboy a while back as a 'Sexy Urban Legend'.

    I bet he was abducted by aliens and they removed his kidneys for dinner.

    This reminds me of the time I was on my way to the post office to pick up my case of free M&M's, sent to me because I forwarded their e-mail to five other people, celebrating the fact that the year 2000 is "MM" in Roman numerals, when I ran into a friend whose neighbor, a young man, was home recovering from having been served a rat in his bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken - which is predictable, since as everyone knows, there's no actual chicken in Kentucky Fried Chicken, which is why the government made them change their name to KFC.

    Anyway, one day this guy went to sleep and when he awoke he was in his bathtub and it was full of ice and he was sore all over and when he got out of the tub he realized that HIS KIDNEYS HAD BEEN STOLEN.
    He saw a note on his mirror that said "Call 911!" but he was afraid to use his phone because it was connected to his computer, and there was a virus on his computer that would destroy his hard drive if he opened e-mail entitled "Join the crew!" He knew it wasn't a hoax because he himself was a computer programmer who was working on software to prevent a global disaster in which all the computers get together and distribute the $250.00 Neiman-Marcus cookie recipe under the leadership of Bill Gates.
    It's true - I read it all last week in a mass e-mail from BILL GATES HIMSELF, who was also promising me a free Disney World vacation and $5,000 if I would forward the e-mail to everyone I know.)
    The poor man then tried to call 911 from a pay phone to report his missing kidneys, but a voice on the line first asked him to press #90, which unwittingly gave the bandit full access to the phone line at the guy's expense.
    Then reaching into the coin-return slot he got jabbed with an HIV-infected needle around which was wrapped a note that said, "Welcome to the world of AIDS."
    Luckily he was only a few blocks from the hospital - the one where that little boy who is dying of cancer is, the one whose last wish is for everyone in the world to send him an e-mail and the American Cancer Society has agreed to pay him a nickel for every e-mail he receives.
    I sent him two e-mails and one of them was a bunch of x's and o's in the shape of an angel (if you get it and forward it to more than 10 people, you will have good luck. Exactly 10 people, you will only have OK luck, and if you send it to fewer than 10 people you will have BAD LUCK FOR SEVEN YEARS). So anyway, the poor guy tried to drive himself to the hospital, but on the way he noticed another car driving without its lights on. To be helpful, he flashed his lights and was promptly shot as part of a gang initiation.

    Send THIS to all the friends who send you their junk mail and you will receive 4 green m&ms, but, if you don't, the owner of Proctor and Gamble will report you to his Satanist friends and you will have more bad luck: you will get cancer from the Sodium Laureth Sulfate in your shampoo, your wife will develop breast cancer from using the antiperspirant which clogs the pores under your arms, and the government will put a tax on your e-mails forever. I know this is all true 'cause my friends have all been sending me emails about it.

    That is pure urban legend. They even used that scenerio in one of the Urban Legend movies. It is just one of those things like mixing Pop Rocks candy and cola, or the one about the guy with the hook. Or even better the one about earwigs laying eggs in your brain.

    BTW, I like the way you were able to incorporate so many urban legends into that one story.

    It's really a rhetorical question. I, for one, believe it's possible that such a thing could be happening. Who would've believed some ten years ago, that a guy eats people for dinner( the man-eater Jeffry Dommer).

    He was just one of many canibalistic serial killers who came before him. There have been many throuout time.

    There have also bee many cultures through the world who have at some time in their history, "eaten people for dinner"

    Yah. Who would've thought it was your neighbor.

    My point is, for all you know your neighbor is part of an organized organ-harvesting group.
