More "contaminants" sold as gobies

What is it about white checked gobies? Shipments of them often seem to have "contaminant" species in with them. Last year I got four homaloptera zollengeri being sold as gobies. Today, I got a cool schistura species (S. waltoni?) being sold as a white checked goby. Anyone else had similar experiences?
