Turns out it is nothing but a scam and when you click the link it redirects you to here: http://www.digitalgamma.com/fraud.html There it asks you to enter your CC# and other vital info. I called BestBuy.com about this crap and they were aware of what is going on and are starting an investigation. If you did go to that site and send any CC info, BestBuy.com advises that you contact your bank immediately. Please remember this assistance when mr. ad hominem starts in on his false and hate filled accusations about me.

Apparently something has been done about it because the link no longer works.

If you would stop your "false hate filled accusations" about every other topic, that wouldn't happen. Poor Imbrog...everybody is out to get him... [rolleyes]

I thought this was about Best Buy scamming. Like how they mess with anything on interst free, so that you never pay it off in time.

I got it last night, too. I emailed Best Buy and haven't gotten a response yet - probably because they've been getting so many questions. I can't believe I'm saying this, "Thank you, Imbroglio" CR

I got the email this morning. I forwarded it to some BestBuy website sales contacts.
