Was this via email? If so, maybe another one of those "Your eBay/PayPal account has been suspended" emails.

I haven't gotten that.

I though I was the only one to have their account suspended... twice a day... four times a week.

No, it's true. It's sort of a clearance sale... D* is dumping their reconditioned 40 GB DVRs. Nobody wants them any more, so they're moving them out of the warehouse any way they can.

The offer is real.

And when it says "no strings attached", they mean it: no commitment.
They are only sending this letter/email to customer that already have an active DVR.

You're special in a short-bus, trailer park kind of way. ;)

Just kidding. Couldn't resist.

Yeah, I got the same letter. I must be special too. Now if they offer me a free HD-DVR, I'll take it.
