I would just ask Bell for return packaging and send the receivers to them. Bell is the owner so giving them to anyone else doesn't make sense. Alternately, you might just leave them at a Bell store if there is one nearby.
Just so you follow the way Bell TV are running the returns of Rentals, they wil issue the Receivers to a Company to try to recover the receivers from the address they were rented at. If they have moved, Bell will proceed to send the account to a collection agency.
If they find the customer home, the receivers are taken, a receipt is issued and the collection agency is not involved.
The costs involved for none return are high, Bell change the full landed cost of a receiver, I can't remember all the charges but I seem to recall that a 9200/9242/9241 is about $848.00.
I have not had to return anything to Bell but if they are like Cogeco the customer was charged within 30 days of the receivers not being returned. Since you have had them for 'some time' the customer has probably already paid for them or has skipped out on Bell. I would just return them to Bell anonymously. If you wanted to get sticky they could charge you with possession of stolen properly.
seems a little funny....why would they activate a "missing" or stolen receiver?
as far as bell is concerned they must be your receivers? if you bought them..sell them...if you rented them return them, or you may be stuck with a bill. the "origanal" owner has already been dealt with or the receivers would not have been activated.
