Interesting . . . . . .
I received the following e-mail :-
"We encountered a problem at the depot during the dispatch of orders 80000-85000
(your order ref.83xxx
). Unfortunately your order was included in this and was not dispatched on time. The point at which we realised our mistake we were too late and are now awaiting the latest dispatch of Pi's to rectify our mistake. We are now expecting to dispatch your Pi by the end of the month at the latest. We sincerely apologise for the delay and any inconvenience caused,"
It seems there is a bigger problem that I first thought - anywhere between 80000 and 100000, your guess is as good as anybodies - though undoubtedly better than RS's - they really can't count, or these e-mails are to say the least 'mis-leading'
RS appear to have failed on around the last 20% of their initial 100000 orders looking at this.
Does anyone else have this or a similar mail with different numbers in it?
I really don't want to appear to be accusing RS of lying
, surely they knew customers would compare e-mails, but I now suspect what I though was finally an honest admission of failure could actually be far from it, just another fabricated e-mail to quieten us down a bit longer !!
