    Maybe I’m missing something here but why would you not want to let your friend have a commission on the sale rather than give all the money to supplier? You were planning to buy the product anyway, right? Sure the system can be abused, but that’s true of just about anything…buyer beware.

    My opinion on being “scammy” is, if it was a true scam, the people you refer will face net losses from signing up. Additionally, since referring others does give that person money, then it is proof that the scheme actually works, so it cannot be called a scam for that reason either.
