Unfortunately, http://buyerguardian.com/ has had to shut down. You can read their message on their site at http://buyerguardian.com/ and I have placed a copy of it here.

To Our Faithful Customers:
We are sad to report that after careful and lengthy consideration we have made the decision to cease operations at BuyerGuardian.com. This is a very difficult decision and one that is made primarily due to the rapid growth of online escrow fraud.
Unfortunately, individuals have at times used altered copies of our web site content to defraud auto buyers. We do not want to enable these fraudulent transactions in any manner whatsoever. Any website using the BuyerGuardian.com logo, our site layout or our color scheme is doing so without our permission and is a fraudulent website.
Please check with http://www.escrow-fraud.com or your local Better Business Bureau before using an escrow company. The only other national vehicle escrow service of which we are aware of at this time is Escrow.com (http://www.escrow.com).
We want to thank all of the people whom we were able to help experience a seamless and successful interstate or international automobile transaction. We appreciate the kind words and support from our customers and hope to serve the automotive industry again in the future.
The BuyerGuardian.com Team
