    Saw the same thing happen on Roseanne, she started receiving freezers, refrigerators, you name it ! LOL! Don't you guys watch old reruns?
    Seriously tho, since you have had to have it replaced makes sense to keep it as a backup since the chance of your M/B failing again is possible.
    If they want it back you will hear from them one way or another, email or letter.

    Think about it like this, if you give them a call and they do want it back, are they really going to send you the shipping fees?

    Give them a call anyway. I bet they tell you to keep it.

    i would keep it.
    they wont notice, paying shipping and taxes and crap will be even more expensive for them that the production costs.

    We are dishonest but well, i would never steal to another person, but big companies are at a different level :p. Mainlly bcs the one who gets stolen has craploads of money.

    I still say give them a call. They'll probably tell you to keep it, and then you'll feel better about yourself for doing the right thing.
    Don't let the dishonest bring you down.
