On the inside door of the MiniMed:

Caution: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by or on the
order of a physician.

That makes the e-bay sale almost certainly illegal. 

On the other hand, it looks to me like there's a loophole there allowing
people to "hand-down" pumps free of charge without penalty. I know it's
been done!
