Really sorry to hear this happened to you. As others have said, it unfortunately happens a lot. When we had our 30amp circuit installed at the house I went out and bought the correct outlet and the single pole 30a breaker and handed it to the electrician along with the instructions from this site on how it should be wired. I also tested with a volt meter before I plugged in.
If you don't mind, keep a tally of the costs of all the repairs and replacements and post a new thread with the totals. I see a lot of folks that don't want to invest in something like the Progressive EMS systems because they are expensive, but I have a feeling this repair will cost a lot more. It would be an interesting comparison and may help to convince some that the cost of NOT having one is much higher.
Hope you are able to get it all repaired quickly. Good luck.
