    I was also discussing this issue in wormhole some days back. Thank You @Abhishek654 for creating the thread.
    This issue has been happening for a long time. The daily average referrals of the top 3 accounts are around 40+ devices per day (that too during periods where launches were not taking place)

    Thanks for the tag, I already forwarded this to the e-com team. I'm any case, if I had to guess, I'd say these are resellers and/or pages with high traffic that make a living off referrals. The simplest explanation is often the correct one.

    Even if they are resellers, why would they use temporary mail id for creating so many orders especially where huge amount transactions are involved. They might use their primary email id for the purpose. That's what is making this look suspicious. Also, why are they using multiple temporary accounts for referral. They could use a single account for all the referrals.

    No idea.

    In any case, I've talked with the E-com team. They are aware of the situation, but there is no loophole. However, they will possibly tweak the system in the future.

    Interesting workaround. Here in the EU I do see the same accounts often but definitely not enough that's its an exploit. Plus the shipping costs on the prize coupons probably makes it less worth it and there are no product vouchers in the points store lol
