Belkin Case Scratches iPhone

When I bought my iPhone I also purchased a Belkin acrylic case to protect the phone. The irony is that the case scratches the phone where the plastic comes in contact with the iPhone.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

It took me a couple days to figure out why the phone scratches were increasing. Now, I no longer use the case, but I'm wondering if it's possible to buff out the scratches.

Although it doesn't come through in this photo - the scratches are very noticeable since it's on the shiny chrome part of the phone. I know, I'm whining, but, damn, you'd expect a case to protect the phone not to damage it.

Update: It seems I was a little slow to notice that this is a known problem.

HEY!! I had the same case and got the EXACT SAME marks on the EXACT SAME spot on my Iphone. Have you been able to buff those marks out?
