Is this for real!!!!?

I spent 3 weeks doing an interview with a Pharma Company, went through all the stages, phone interview, F2F with the hiring Manager, F2F with her manager and it all went perfectly. At the end, the recruiter representing me was told by the Pharma Company's HR department that they wanted to bring me on board. I was totally excited. On their part after each F2F meeting the Hiring Manager and her boss/manager told me the same and asked me about my availability. I was so excited. Two days later I got a call from another recruiter about the same job with the same company. I was shocked so I immediately called the recruiter representing me and she said she just heard that they were passing on the position...... All I could say is OMG is this for real!!!! Someone please tell me why do employers do that?
