If you want to call it fraud, you'll need to back it up with evidence etc.
IIRC, dell's next business warranty excludes various things, and it's
not actually done by them anyway, so they won't take responsibility if
whoever does it doesn't turn up.
Read the contract for warranty you signed with them. If they broke it,
sue them, or take them to the small claims court.
Don't come onto this list making possibly dangerous comments and leaving
anyone who replies open to nuisance replies from legal trigger happy people.
