The idea is fairly simple.
At level 3 you receive 400 RP.
In January 42 legacy skins will go on sale. (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2830644) Their normal price is ~520. They will be on sale for 50%, so they are going to cost about 260. It doesn't matter as long as they are under 400 RP.
In PBE there is a new feature, the Gifting Center (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=myE5e6YXApU). With this feature you can give other players skins.
So to get a free skins:

1. Make smurf and get it to level 3.
2. Gift the legacy on sale skin to main account.
3. Repeat.

Thanks for informing the Riot team and everyone else exactly how to use a smurf account to abuse their system.

Or perhaps you forgot to read about this thread (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2088377)?

Allow us to gift champions, even if limited to one per week.

So I went around in PBE gifting a skin and a champion to 2 random people in the PBE general chat, they enjoyed it and the told me how much they liked the gift receiving treasure chest. I also gifted everyone on my friends list Vi even tough they were offline, a very cool surprise when they log in later

Gifting is really hard to do unless you ask your friend who they own and what they want

To improve I suggest you be able to see the owned champions/skins of the gift receiver

just tried gifting a friend and I had to explicitly ask him what he wanted , takes the surprise out of it

the skin pentakill olaf transferred successfully

got a person diana, everything went fine but of course it was not much of a surprise because I could not tell what he had
you can only gift champions with RP It would be nice if we could use IP

you can gift people who are not online

in the text box for gifting you can only highlight the first 2 lines of you message, this makes deletion of text that does not fit the 300 word limit very awkward

I'm pointing out an obvious abuse of their system.

This thread is supposed to be a place where you publish potential abuses. I'm doing that.

An abuse like this means that the gifting system needs to have some sort of restriction on it. Possibly making it so that you can't use the gifting system until level 10 or so would stymie any abuses under the idea which I expressed.

There will be some restrictions in place to aide with this sort of thing, but we're still defining them. I absolutely want to hear about potential exploits/abuse of the gifting system.

Plus the system isn't even live yet. Now's the perfect time to point out exploits because it gives Riot the chance to close them before anyone can actually use them.

gifting of champions and skins would be protected from this if you made the free RP given by riot not usable for gifting, or if that is not possible place a level limit or a games played limit on gifting

alternatively a limit that states you must have purchased at least the smallest RP card on an account in order to gift would be absolutely effective on curbing this out

if they purchase a $5 RP card at level 3 they would have 1050 RP enough for a 975 skin, so you might not want a limit so low since it could still b abused to some amount

if they purchase a $10 Rp card at level 3 they would have 400+1380=1780 RP, this is the best limit since they can't afford a 1850 and have basically paid for a 520 or a 975

Not being able to see what stuff my friend already owns makes things annoying.

This is something we wanted to make happen, but won't do with this release of Gifting. There's a lot of reasons behind it. We've done our best to make the existing experience surrounding this as good as it can be for now.
