Paint fading? or swiped by another car?

I am hoping for a 2nd opinion about how this may have happened. There are only two things I can think of - car wash (highly doubtful) or the automotive shop I took it to were not careful when driving it around last week. I first noticed it immediately after the automotive shop I took it to finished working on it. What is the best way for me to fix this body issue?

Can you wash it before to confirm the level of potential damage? Can't see now..

Exactly - at lease wipe it down and maybe take a pic from a little further back for perspective.

It appears to be a light enough scuff that it can be buffed out; the kind of mark that most scratch removers would tackle nicely.

If this is the first time something like this has happened, you must be blessed!

here are a few different approaches (you'll probably be more interested in the first as it involved using a product to buff it out):
