Lost some mounting nuts to my cooler, chances of Cooler Master selling me a new mounting kit?

So after shearing one of the nuts off completely while trying to connect the 8 pin aux power to my board I removed the cooler and put everything back in the box, or at least so I thought.

 

Yesterday I took the sheared nut to my uncles and he managed to extract the bolt from inside it using a dremel to make a cut in the top then using a flat head screwdriver to unscrew it. I've tried today to reinstall it and luckily I checked everything was present before stripping my PC down because somehow I have managed to lose one of the nuts, theres only 3 (including the one we fixed yesterday) and there should be 4.

 

I've just spent over an hour and gone through every section of my room with a fine toothcomb, I've pulled out all my tables, cupboards, my bed, heck I even got my dad to pop round and help me lift the wardrobe so I could look under it. I even had the vacuum in hand and vacuumed every section as I was checking just in case I missed it by eye but it seem, for all intents and purposes, to have disappeared.

 

I realise you guys cannot help me but I'm wondering if I contact CM what are the chances of them selling me a new mounting kit? I wouldn't even want it for free, I would pay for it because at this point I have a £65 cooler sat in a box doing nothing and my system is running on the stock AMD cooler.

 

Thoughts?

Really good. Cooler master has always been good to me. I once bought a hyper 212 with a nut that didn't have threads. Contacted CM and they sent me another one no questions asked.
