If they swapped the engine serial tag on the timing cover, you'd have some shred of evidence when matching it to the vin. Try calling Dodge to see if they can cross reference the two.

Where are you located?
What is the truck?
What was the truck originally in the shop for?
How long did they have it?
What was their response when confronted with the allegations?
Are there any reviews online of their shop?

Build sheet may have engine serial number. What was it in the shop for? Fell free to name them when you are sure. Check google yelp and so on for other issues with them

Ya I am calling BS as well. If a shop wanted to switch blocks it would be easier to just make a copy of the key and steel the whole truck at a later date.
The time and cost to switch out the components, as the OP states happened, would not be the most cost effective way to get a block. Not to say it could not happen, just that is just not financially a smart move for any shop who is in business to turn a profit.
