You were told correctly, it will not. The bellhousing of the 2.8 will actually fit inside of the 350's bellhousing area and not even come close to matching any of the bolts required to mount it to the 350 engine.
Even if it were to bolt to the 350, it wouldn't hold up for very long.
Without trying to go into details, the V-6 transmission internals would not hold up for very long with a V-8 in front of it.
