Buy second hand Fortigate 8xE

Hi,

 

I have seen a second hand Fortigate 80E.  

 

Can the current owner still transfer ownership to another person/company?  

 

Or can the new owner transfer it over themselves?

 

The owner sent me:

Buying a pre-owned FTNT device is always a gamble if you want to add support or feature licenses on the device. Because the previous registerer needs to agree to release it when FTNT CS contacted based on your request. If that party didn't reply to it, the transfer can't happen because of the FTNT policy.
FTNT doesn't have a revoking policy in those situations, which happened to my old FG50E 6-7 years ago.

Hi,

 

The seller just told me that "It's already been removed from the current account. No need to transfer,"  which I think is what I want. Am I right?

I think so.
