Wrong seed variety

I ordered the above seeds,i.e., the seeds of dolichos vine as it's also given in the description (the plant height is about 15-25 feet) on contrary it was a mere 2 feet plant that I came to know after growing they turned out to be bush type plants. It's very unacceptable incident.
