I bought 3 lightning to 30-pin adapters on ebay... I got this email from the seller today: Thank you for your purchase of your Lightning Adapter There has been some confusion with an email that eBay has sent to regarding this item. It was removed due to licensing but I assure you your sale and everyone else's sale is still active and you will be getting your adapter. Please Disregard the eBay email as it does not apply to your transaction and disregard if I have already contacted you about this matter. Apple has reported every seller on eBay. Here is the email Apple sent me via eBay- eBay sent this message to Vasilios Poulos (bp21golf). Your registered name is included to show this message originated from eBay. Learn more.
