Requests are processed according the transfer policies
<https://www.arin.net/policy/nrpm.html#eight>. If a
request doesn't meet the transfer policy (e.g. the sale
is not to an actual entity that has an operational need
for address space or it is more space than needed for the
next twelve months), then it will be denied.
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?
