Angry Organ transplant auction spam

This is one of the more repulsive pieces of spam I've ever received. I checked out the web site and it appears they really do auction off human organs for transplantation.

Do you need a kidney transplant, because if you do we could save your life. We have been saving lives for over 10 years.

We have auctions going all the time, even some that are all inclusive.

So come and visit us at http://WWW.<deleted>.COM

That is sick If it is a *genuine* auction, it makes you wonder where they get a steady supply of kidneys.

A little digging around and I found that the situation is even stranger than it first seems. The web site is hosted by the folks mentioned in this article http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/8.07/haven.html.

Be sure to read the entire article.
