So I ordered a Beaglebone Black from Sparkfun 10 days or so ago and they were on back order and stated that they had a shipment coming in Jan. 5th so on Jan. 3rd they got a shipment of 240 of them and my order was place on BO Arrived status. I might add that they said on there BBB page that 240 were available!
So here it is 4 days later and they modified my order to New Order again and when I called they said I would have to wait for the next shipment on Feb. 19 because all the BO's head of me got them.

WTF?

If they were all ate up by BO's why did they put on the BBB page that there were 240 available for shipment.
This just seems like bad practice to me or am I just over reacting?

Either way I have cancelled my order and won't do business with them again!
