I heard from a friend (note: NOT FOAF!) that they buy huge quantities of their own L.R.H. books from retailers and RESELL them (through their publisher) back to the bookstores where they come from, thus drastically increasing the sales stats (at a small cost, no doubt absorbed by selling a few more deluxe editions of the E-meter). Is that possible (i.e. legal)? If so, it MUST be true...
