What would you have done?

I have had my eye on a HVR-DR60 for awhile. With the lower price and the $500 rebate I figured now was the time so I placed my order from B&H for a 16x9 bag and a DR60 and waited for the UPS truck. The order came yesterday and imagine my shock when I opended the box to find a CASE OF 5 HVR-DR60's. I checked my invoce and credit card statement to ensure I was only charged for the one. I have already decided what I am going to do which is return them, but what would you do?

I don't think I could sleep at night if I kept them... too much guilt. The feeling I get doing something honorable and having less, is so much better than the feeling I get being dishonest and having more.

Give back and ask with some sense of humor if you don't deserve at least a gift card.

hehe

Update

I called to set up a return for the drives and the first thing the customer service rep says, "we never would have known". I have to admit I reaaaalllllllly thought about keeping those drives but in the end it was the right thing to do and B&H is giving me a gift card for my honesty.

Actually, I think of this as ethics instead of morality.

I agree, doing the right thing is always the best course of action.

but in our modern world, doing the right thing would be to order again another drive (hoping to receive 5 again) and sell the remaining.
and by most, you would be considered like a proactive guy who knows how to grab opportunity.
