This story was too good to pass up. I'd stay away from Dell, or at least whoever their distributor is:

I just figured it would be more appropriate in market watch, I didn't bother to search anywhere else. My apologies.

The OP said the order was canceled. I think it's all BS but I'm very cynical.

No need to apologize.. I just thought it was funny it came back around to where it started. People have started much more needless threads, trust me. ;)

Newegg sent out a batch of Fake CPU's from another distributor for which D&H was initially blamed. So you better believe this type of thing actually can happen.

I don't really see what all the hype is about. It's certainly a shell-shocker to find something like that, but the company is making it right. By no means is Dell as a whole, or their distributor a bad company for this. When it boils down to it, there are two probable reasons this happened:

1) Someone in the supply or delivery chain decided to steal the camera. (Most likely scenario.)
2) The person is playing a hoax or is a thief themselves. (Least likely scenario.) (I am not accusing the person of this, just pointing out that it's a possible, but unlikely scenario.)

In both of the above cases, a company is not to blame and I'm sure they are investigating it the best they can to identify what happened. Certainly an amusing story, but I don't see it as anything other then that.

A good reason to purchase the cameras/lenses from a local store. Lucky me i live in a big city with the best camera stores around.

its mickey mouse services over at Dell India. I've had enough of the idiots over at dell. No one is working to help you really. They often just keep transferring your calls and not fulfill request.
