Sharpie is a great company and I would hate to see the public end up with a bad view of Sharpie over this.

The domain that the sharpie give away is on is called com-ss.com. the sub domain address is sharpie.com-ss.com

This domain is registered out of Panama. What they do is create a sub domain of the business they want to exploit. They then gain consumer trust with the trusted business name. You go there, give them the information they want and they fullfil their goals by deceiving you and infringing on the brand name of a trusted company.
