It doesn't have to be fraud to close someone's account. It only has to be a violation of the program's rules and conditions. As cited above, managing someone else's account is a violation of the Mileage Plus rules so United, trying to cut $2-Billion in costs, could permissibly close accounts managed by someone else (e.g., multiple accounts tied to a single e-mail address).

If UA does so, what can you do about it?

As shown in the recent loss in the Million Miler case, nothing.

Caveat emptor.
