Wrong Camera?

After trading in my GoPro Hero 2 for a GoPro Hero 8, with a processing time of 14 days and a 2 day delivery transit time, I wasn't expecting to get my camera until the 9th of November.  Guess what?  It arrived today!  I was estactic until I opened the box and saw this...

The camera is upside down!  Even the packaging is upside down!!  I can't believe this.  They must have mailed me the Australian model or something....   This is a disaster and my life is ruined, what do I do now?

 

@danielr15  @fishycomics  Do you guys have any idea what I am ever to do????

This just confirms every rant and temper tantrum I've read on this forum to be true!  Unbelievable.  I can't believe how wrong I've been.  As an, "obvious GoPro employee" and "Shill", I just don't know what to say. Smiley Tongue

 

Congrats on the camera!  I sent in my Trade Up last week and Delivery tracking says it should arrive tomorrow!

Re: Wrong Camera?

Ok,

 

Best solution is to send it to me.

 

I will look at and resolve issue.

@robindean
If you can't get it resolved, my kid is really tech savvy and said he'd like a crack at it.

Re: Wrong Camera?

I finally managed to get this issue solved, a guy on the bus I was talking to told me his cousin in Australia had the opposite problem.  They mailed him an American model.  Luckily for me he was flying Australia that very evening to visit his cousin.  So he said he'd swap my camera with his one.  So I gave him my Hero 8, I can't believe my luck!  He'll be back in 6 months.

That is lucky!
BTW, I need your full name, birthdate, mother's maiden name, and credit card information. It's for a survey I'm conducting. Feel free to PM me the info at your earliest convenience.
