I bought my note new from amazon, but the note itself is from Germany.
All they (safeware) asked for proof of ownership at the time of application was the serial number, and I had to pick a second proof of ownership that would be provided in the event of damage or theft, and I chose 'receipt' since one was sent in the shipment with my device.
They never asked where it was purchased from though, so it doesn't really seem that important to them I guess. All they seem to care about is the cost to replace and availability, not whether the device or seller is native to the US. If a replacement can be attained at the coverage amount specified then it should go through.
This is most likely so that they can easily cover ebay purchases.
