It wasn't my friend who got in trouble and he wasn't even involved. It was his brothers, brother-in-law, and sister that were doing it. I don't even know their SN's, so he knows it wasn't me.

I have no idea how they were playing, so I don't know about this specific case, but many times there is very obvious chip dumping in peculiar situations, and if that happens numerous times over a big enough sample, bingo.
Also, it doesn't matter that you play with a certain person numerous times. Back when I was reg'ing SnG's I would play with some of the same people for hundreds of games over the course of a month because they were regs too.
