The former is perfectly fine so long as there is no payment, trade, or barter in return for the redemption. The latter is simply an anti-fraud device.

It sounds to me as though AS believes that a third-party accessed the account to make the purchase rather than the OP.
Yes. Interesting first post by the poster.

Will the OP please clarify the following?
(1) How long was the account open?
(2) How many of the miles earned were by flying v. mileage purchases and credit card churn?
(3) How many previous mileage awards have been redeemed on the account? (And if any, how many for the OP, and how many for others)?

But as with many new posters with such a post, we never hear anything again.
