Presumably organisations will check this and fake the appropriate paperwork and come up with some plausible excuse for requiring the space within the next 12 months BEFORE they part with their cash.

It would be most amusing for somebody to buy space, hand over the money and then have ARIN deny the transfer.

So I do wonder, how is this policy is being enforced and will ARIN be investigating this current news item?
