It's too bad. B&H just got my money. Oh well..... it had to go somewhere ....
i just got a ex+ nikon PC lens from them ..
ordered and received in 2 days
and then they refunded my credit card
for the total amount i spent on the lens and shipping
( joking )
i agree with keith probably someone bought it
worth a phone call ...

That type of attack usually is done by a group looking for a webhost for their spam. Glad to hear KEH has a solid firewall in place to prevent malicious hosting.

i ordered today and the site worked but yes I noticed it had been misbehaving last week here and the email about being hacked/down too.

Maybe our various spouses got together and decided to "take out" KEH

KEH was hit with a DDoS attack last week. Unfortunately there's no good defense against that.
They did offer free shipping on stuff by way of apology. I took advantage of that to get a large camera case, and saved $30 shipping.
Back to the OP...
Most likely they did not have the lens in stock at the grade your ordered (or higher), so they refunded your money.
They don't update inventory until an item is actually pulled for shipment, so most likely there was an order ahead of yours.
One very nice thing about KEH...
If they do not have an item in the condition you ordered, they'll send a nicer copy at the price of the poorer one.

OK, I got an email from KEH about my order mentioned in the OP. Basically, they said they couldn't find the lens in their stock so they refunded me.
