I'm not in the market for a new computer right now, but given
that these computers, presumably for your company, were ordered
with:

I am interested in finding out if you have any job openings.
Your company sounds like a really neat place to work. Talk about
your fringe benefits!

I wish I had your your sales rep at Dell......... blowing off $20K of
systems because of an 'error'. I was kind of surprised that these high-end
configurations had a 17" CRT rather than a 19 or 20 inch high-end LCD. I'm
even more surprised you can't find eager buyers in LA. Hell, soemone would
drive from San Diego for a buy like you're offering. Think of all the
shipping hassles you'd save and extra profits you'd make.

BTW, where's your company website?? Any company that can drop $20K on a few
computers is obviously a serious player in the industry, right? Do you even
have a domain name? No, AOL.COM doesn't count.

If Dell gets a return, the complete cost of the computer comes out of
the salesman's margin numbers. The sales staff is far better off to
generate an order credit and just give you the machines. If it was
indeed a shipping error, nothing would be billed anyway, a return on
half a dozen XPS machines would kill a whole week's margin, and quite
possibly lead to the salesman getting fired.

Keep the computers.

If that is the way big businesses commonly work then it is no wonder
the corporate spiral is going the way it is, "I loose the company
twenty grand, nobody will notice AND I get to keep my job."

And telling a customer to keep a shipment of PC's wouldn't!
If it was a shipping error, there would be no adjustment to the sales margin
either.

That's not the way Dell works. The customer would get return credit for
the excess computers, and end up not having to pay for the ones they
actually ordered. The salesman would still get screwed.

I find it hard to believe (working in the industry) that a company as large
as Dell is not using a system that would prevent this with a couple
keystrokes. I also find it hard to believe they are going to refund money
that was never billed/paid. And even if it was billed, but a correction
(credit) needed to the customers account as the items were not ordered, then
by all rights, the salesperson does not deserve the credit for the sale.
