Shopping Horrors? Customer buys Canon 5DMk3, receives box full of wood (twice)
A shopping horror story has been documented at FStop Lounge, where a photographer purchased the Canon 5D Mark III from Dell, and twice he received a box full of wood and/or laminated flooring instead of the actual camera inside the camera box. Pictures of the boxes are included. The story is discussed at FStoppers (not to be confused with FStop Lounge) and at SLR Lounge (not to be confused with FStop Lounge).
We obviously have no way of knowing what happened, since our remote viewing time machine is currently broken. But this serves as a reminder that the bigger the amount of a purchase, the more attention a consumer/buyer should pay (pun intended).
