I got tired of seeing on eBay what I assume (from reading threads, etc.) are illegal sales of 322s and 522s. So, I sent an alert to eBay. I got back a canned response which I then forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. The response I got from E* rather surprised me. Here it is:
Any retailers out there want to correct my bad? Or maybe follow up through your own channels and let us know what email@example.com said:These receivers can be obtained by coming in as a new customer under a
leasing option. These receivers you see on Ebay may possibly be supplied by
an outside source, ie independent retailers. If you have any further
questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.
