For what its worth, I've usually had good results with Samson. I've bought things from them in the past and they are generally up front and honest. I suspect this caught them off-guard too, but that's no excuse for leaving up incorrect information. I'd suggest giving them another day to pull their act together before coming to any conclusions.
MobilePlanet.uk.com is one of my "secret" sites. They tend to have stuff you can't get elsewhere. For example, that's how I ultimately got a HP-40gs (not sold in the USA). However, they are NOTORIOUS for posting dates and inventory volumes that are completely bunk. After placing my order, and promising next-day shipping, it took almost daily pestering over a course of more than a month to finally get my calc. Granted, they did credit me the shipping costs, and I honestly would have waited longer just to get it :-), but it still left a sour taste in my mouth.
That all being said, keep in mind that even HP's site has wrong information on it right now. They should also clean up their act. In this day and age, there's no excuse for not knowing exactly how many pieces you have in stock, when it moves from place to place, etc.
Oh, and finally, I *totally* agree about Buy.com. Good prices, great deals at times, but a really, really horrible company to deal with if ANYTHING goes wrong. They've lost me a couple of times. Unfortunately, I keep coming back like an addict ;-), mainly when they have super deals, but I really dislike that company. I can't recommend them to anyone.
