I found this site googling bitcoins to see what people were saying.  They seem to offer bitcoins for dollars, via creditcard, at a rate that is radically different than the market rate.  They aren't on the trade page on bitcoin.org though and I haven't seen them mentioned anywhere else.  I don't have a credit card, so I can't take advantage of their significant underpricing of bitcoins even if I decided to trust what seems like a slightly shady site, I am curious about anyone else's take on this though.

Don't buy from buybitcoins.com.  I made a credit card transaction for 4 coins last week or so but never got any payments.  I tried to contact the owner but he disappeared.  I posted some messages in the forum and sent him a private message but no word!  I would stay away.  I hope my credit card doesn't get compromised.
