A large batch of fraudulent referrals were removed today.  A fraudulent referral is anybody that you refer who uses the same computer as you.

If you share a computer (or household) with somebody, you are not allowed to refer them.  They are welcome to join, but may not be referred by you.

To avoid having your referrals deemed as fraudulent, don't let them sign into their accounts from your computer!  Also, don't sign into your account from their computer!

Why do we care?  A lot of people like to sign up and then immediately refer themselves and do all of their offers from their second account.  This means they make 120% on all their offers because their referrer (themselves) is getting 20% of everything.

You may not have had any fraudulent referrals and you still notice a decrease in your referral commission.  This would occur when one of your second level referrals was fraudulent.  So if you referred John who then referred himself.  You would still get the 20% from John, but you won't get the 5% from the second account because John had a fraudulent referral which was removed.

NOTE: Only the referral ties were removed.  Nobody's accounts were deleted. (except for one guy in India who referred 50 accounts who each did $1 just so he could make payout)

You can refer him.  Just make sure he never logs in on your cpu.
