Hello, Are you saying they want your existing credit card numbers? How did you hear of them?

Hello, I'd be leery of this company. In the first place, according to the site's WHOIS, this company is only 4 months old. So you can't rely on the fact that there are no scam reports. It's a blank slate. The domain name was registered and the site launched on September 29, 2015. Also, they have reserved the site for one year only, the least amount of time that they can do so and the most impractical option. This is not a site that has set itself up for the long haul, and that's always a bad sign. The Colorado Secretary of State shows no such company as Card Safeguard or doing business in Colorado. The address on the website traces to another business. Finally, why would they give this away free? What do they get out of that? The answer probably is your credit card number. For less than $10 you can order protective sleeves for your credit card from Amazon, where you know that your purchase is buyer protected. I can't guarantee that is a scam. but it's suspicious and there's no need for you find out the hard way when it's both cheap and easy to get protection from a reliable source.
