Sorry to hear about this @Zerov - what does your account's plan tab say? 

As per your issue now, you might have not received your bonus space because your referral either hasn't installed the Dropbox desktop application yet or hasn’t verified their email address.  

After creating a Dropbox account, your friend must download and install the Dropbox client application and verify their email address in order for the two of you to receive credit. Once their computer is linked to their account and their email is verified, you should both receive the bonus.

Let me know what you find and happy Monday!
