Shadowfire; You probably won't get in huge trouble unless there is a clear pattern of abuse. avoid doing it again and you should be fine.

Moyeja: Account sharing, as far as I am aware, is breaking the rules. Don't know if they ban for it, or just won't do anything if the account gets stolen by one of you, but yeah nothing good will come of it if something bad happens.

HellxKing: To get an IP reward, they have to get to summoner level five, you then have to go to your refer a friend page after a couple days, and click the redeem button. To get the bonus tier rewards, they have to get to level ten. It can take a while for the rewards to become available to you.

Ok, lets look at the math on this. To get a character to level ten takes about fifteen games give or take depending on wins (rough estimate), a game takes between thirty minutes to an hour average. I get if you made ten USD an hour working two hours would get you enough to buy 2800 RP, where otherwise you would have to refer fifty friends and have all of them get to level ten to match that twenty dollars. So making smurfs is just a waste of the players time in the first place, and so is taking the time to get your friend to play. The rewards are far to few for the effort it takes to get new people to join.

Hopefully I don't get in trouble for inviting my brother. He lives at my house but has his own computer.

That's quite obviously not abusing the system. Your brother's another person, not you making duplicate accounts.

Agreed but there's always going to be cash-starved young teenagers out there willing to spend that time...

Support is probably the right way to go...but what do you mean by refer-a-friend scam? Somebody abusing the referral system or what?
