Hey all, I want to refer my girlfriend to finish my flatscreens (just need one more!), but I know that you are not allowed to walk someone through the signup. The problem arises that I have checked the status of my account on her computer before. When checking the accounts in the end, do they check IP's from logons etc.? I tried asking them through the customer service area, but their answers were completely useless. Please let me know!

Yes they check ip's of logons.

No, I don't think they do. I've done that on a number of my sites that have been completed successfully, including

did you check status before or after they had signed up?

Well, they do check logon ip addresses. How else would they know if you were walking someone through the process. It might not get you put on hold but it certainly raises a red flag.
