Here Is What Appears To Be Another Scam Site Set Up To Bilk eBay Buyers! www.safeguard-ebay.com This Site Forwards HTTP Port 80 Requests Over To www.squaretrade.com.  So It Looks Fairly Legitimate If Someone Punches It Into A Web Browser!

An eBay Member Posted On The EBMDG If This Was A Safe Way To Pay? This Was Reported To eBay At That Time!

Is that a real way to pay for something on ebay? Does ebay really protect the purchase or is there no such thing?

Thank you,
Dave.

After A Quick Domain Whois Lookup, The Site Was Created On 03/05/2005 And Has Been Blacklisted For Spam 4 Times Already!

It Is Parked At Go Daddy, And Apparently Has Email Enabled With Web Forwarding, That Is Pointing It Over To Square Trade! More Than Likely Set Up With a Stolen Credit Card!!

I Spent 30 Minutes On Hold To Go Daddy's Support Dept (toll call) And Gave Up Trying To Get A Person To Report This To.. But Gave Up!

After That I Emailed [email protected]  They Opened The Tagged Email On 04/04/2004 But Apparently Did Nothing! As The Site Is Still Active As Of This Update 04/06/2004
