Sorry, I did not get your point, pun intended. But can you relate?
He could re-explain, but it still won't come out in English  ;)

basically when ur swiping your cc that is unrelated to the loan you are giving this so called friend. the loan your giving to your friend is more like a gemach loan where you dont plan on collecting any interest. if there is anything added that you are collecting bec of the loan you gave then the ganav wouldnt have to pay you back, bec its part of the investment.

points on the other hand is not a direct additive due to the loan you gave him.  from what i understood from the rav. since the points come along as swiping your card, its not really considered part of the loan. 
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

Don't know if all poskim agree to the actual psak, but if you're paskening that the points aren't a problem, I like Ergel's answer (Lo asrah Torah ela ribbis hbaah miloveh lamalveh) much better - unless you're trying to say the same thing in a more lengthy and confusing way.

But it'll be really difficult to moderate w/o smearing people's names.

You want to smear their names if they're ruining other people's lives..

Of course.
I intended to write w/o smearing non-guilty ppl.
For example, if I had a beef w/ s/o, I'd make up a story so his name would go on the list. The stories would have to be vetted. Otherwise, you'd have slander legal issues.

Wouldn't you be able to dispute say a $10,000 charge made to your "friends" vendor/supplier if he didnt come up with the money?

Threat if this alone should make him paying you a priority... relationships are everything. If I had a payment disputed I would never deal with that customer again.

Something tells me neither you're not going to find too many of the 'borrowers' interested in that arrangement. Better off staying away entirely as a borrower than getting into heter iska. Remember, the people getting scammed are having the principle repayment withheld from them. You think they're going to be able to extract interest from the borrower?

I'm assuming we're talking about a case that he just doesn't have the money. Not that he intentionally scammed you.

Not if a heter iska is signed.
-1 you're charging him in a heter iska has nothing to do if he made or didn't make money or you were charged interest or not. The way a heter iska is structured is that you are setting up a chatzi milveh chatzi pikadon which would mean you split profits and losses equally. However you don't want exposure to losses so you agree that he must swear (or some other formulation which he's unlikely to fulfill) how much was gained loss. If he is unable to do that then you come up with an expected amount to be gained, agree to split the profits (say expected gain is 20%, and you take 10%).
Will make no difference if you were charged interest. Even if you sign a heter iska you can't charge the interest

-1

As soon as your "friend" decided not to repay you, it's a stolen credit card. The vendor will refund you and your "friend" will figure out how to repay them, or risk ruining the relationship and/or get sued.

If you were to set up a heter iska in this situation, it would be logical to structure it such that the agreement to replicate an interest bearing loan via the iska and its attendant details follows the same rules as the credit card does. Again, it seems to me that a complex heter iska setup is well beyond the scope of complexity in any of these swipe borrowing schemes, so it's not really relevant. But if for some reason you wanted to, you could definitely set up a heter iska to cover yourself from the potential charges, fees, etc. that you might incur on the cc.
