I always fill these things out. The thing is I actually see this crap as a total ripoff because years ago I was a plaintiff in a class action against a company I had invested a substantial sum in, but guess who got all the money, the attorney's for the IRS. I lost $40,000 in raw cash which if the investment had worked out (it was an IPO, and no it was not a technology one from the internet boom) it would have had roughly a 12-18% positive return. The owner of the company started skimming money through his step son whom he made the CFO.
Either way ever since then I have always filled the things out because as I said everyone except the proper recipient's received money on that class action. I received three x1650 ATI Radeon's in the mail out of the blue and a few other things although never a check. With the ATI thing I had actually bought 3 X1600's and they all went bad over varied period's of time. The thing is the lawsuit was completed way after the fact or at least the payment's were. So I filled it out and 2.5 years later I went to the mail and bam 3 GPU's in my mailbox. One of them is in my mothers desktop and it is still running strong, 1 is still in the magnetic wrap in a box in my basement, and one I gave to a customer (he did not have the money for a gpu when we bought his computer and it was just wasting space, so I actually did get paid for it in a rudimentary way).
I also got a PSU and a few other things in the mail as well that were or are unrelated to computers! SO fill out the paperwork and maybe one day in the future when you go to the mailbox you get a surprise :)
