Just thought I would let everyone know to avoid buying AppleCare from eBay or other auction sites unless the seller has the original receipt proving that the AppleCare was purchased from Apple (or an authorized reseller) and therefore meeting the legal requirement of demonstrating that Apple has received payment and entered into an agreement that requires payment. I've bought AppleCare on eBay on a number of occasions, but this is the first time I ran into a problem with Apple refusing to honor an agreement that appeared to be legitimate. The main reason this is happening is because there are many sellers on eBay who are selling generated APP codes (hint: they are the ones who will give you a code but REFUSE to provide the original box). Well, it turns out that these scammers are ruining the prospect of saving a few dollars for the rest of us because Apple is cracking down on it and they are saving a few dollars in the meantime by refusing to honor APPs that receipts are lost for. Apple can legally justify this approach, but it is a less than acceptable way to treat legitimate customers. Anyway, you've been warned about what is happening, so be careful if you are going to buy AppleCare on eBay (or another auction site) at all.
