Interpreting DNA Matches

Classification: Query
I just looked at a DNA match "Confidence: 95%" that compared my John White from Delaware (DE) to another tree that placed him in Germany, since "DE" is the country code for Federal Republic of Germany.
Now isn't that silly!
And it wasn't even a specific area of Germany, just "Germany".
So, obviously, AncestryDNA isn't comparing our DNA at all, it's just trying to pair up people from similar areas based on the family trees we've provided for them online at Ancestry.com.
That's useless and has nothing to do with DNA testing.

Either I get my raw data so I can use it to compare it at a legitimate DNA site or I want my money back.
I feel totally ripped off.
