Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As askod explains, there are two verbs: scrape and scrap.

Scrap doubles the p in scrapped, scrapping etc. So scraped and scrapped, though legitimate spellings, mean quite different things.

Spellcheckers, of course, just check against a list of words, and don't advise on this kind of problem :)
