Hi teachers,

Could you tell me if this sentence is correct and natural? Thank you.

Dear Mr. XXX,

My apologies. I have sent the wrong product sample to you, which you will received on Monday. The reason being that I had swapped the samples by mistake. Could you please send the sample back to me and I'll have the correct sample to you?

Thank you for your understanding.

Regards,

My apologies. I mistakenly swapped product samples, and the sample that you will be receiving on Monday is not the correct one. Please send it back and I'll send you the correct sample.

tinanam0102Hi CalifJim,

1. Can you please tell me if I put "Samples being swapped" in an email header, is it correct? How would you paraphrase it?

2. I looked up the dictionary and "swap" means "switch". Would "switch" also alright?

Thank you again.

In this case, I would use switch. Swap gives me the feeling of reciprocity, two people trading intentionally. Just my feeling, here.

I agree. and my opininon: I confused the samples.
Hi Philip, hi Johner,

Thank you very much. I have one question about in a case like this one. How appropriate should one put in an email header? (I put: Samples being swapped in the email subject header)
