Received an interview invitation, after responding to the email I was told it was a mistake...

Hello,

I faced a strange situation a few days ago and I was wondering if anybody has ever heard of similar situations?

I received an interview invitation from a known financial services company a few days ago.
After responding to the email with the times that work best for me, I received an email back that there was a "glitch" in the system and that I wasn't supposed to receive the first email...

Do things like this happen often in such companies?
I was really disappointed but nicely thanked them for their time...

A couple weeks ago I received a voice mail wondering why I didn't confirm my interview date with a BB, when I was never contacted in the first place. I still don't know whether they called me by mistake or somehow never sent me an email invite in the first place.
