Got a good deal on a new DELL Venue 8 Pro little 8" Windows Baytrail tablet on dell.com recently, and got it shipped to Youshop
Tracked it, saw that it arrived at Youshop and waited for the Youshop email saying it had arrived etc
When it didn't, I went back to the Dell website and was gobsmacked to see that the billing address was my correct address and ID at Youshop, but the shipping address was to the same Youshop address but a different name and Youshop NZ ID
I never entered the wrong address, presumably something went wrong with the Dell ordering system/database as unlikely as that sounds
Have contacted Dell several times and no reply yet, I'm guessing they will ask for the package to be sent back, which wouldn't be a problem except...
Contacted Youshop and they said there is nothing they can do since it they didn't make the mistake
Asked them again if they can return the package, and they said too late the guy (won't name him here) in NZ had already paid for the shipping and it was on its way
So congrats to him, he has a new free DELL 8" Windows 8.1 tablets
Next step I guess is to refuse the VISA credit card charges and see how far that gets me.
The deal is over now so I guess no cheap tablet for me
Anyone have any thoughts or comments :)
This does seem like a bit of a flaw in the Youshop forwarding system
