i have a referral that showed up like this too -- I don't know who the person is though so I don't know how to tell them to confirm the e-mail
The person doesn't show up in your list of referrals? (on account page; left side)
I'm surprised that new signups can do offers before they confirm their emails. I assumed FC would want the email confirmation before the person is even given access to the website.
Not sure, but I believe FC is open to US residents only. How is that confirmed?
There's a lot of misinformation floating around about this... I'll try to set the record straight...
1) Referrals appear in the list by your account the moment that they sign up, but...
2) You don't get the $1 referral bonus until they confirm their email address
. Telephone verification (or other steps) are not actually required for you to get a bonus.
3) You get the $2 offer completion bonus when they are credited for completing their first offer; paid to click does not count as an offer for this bonus (but the other daily surveys do). Forum posting bonuses, game bonuses, etc do NOT count for this... they have to complete an offer.
4) You get $5 when their cashout is APPROVED, each and every time.
We have an internal system that validates referrals and if they are from outside the US, their account is automatically restricted from viewing offers & no referral bonuses will be paid to their referrer under any circumstances.
