Re-use of an old account

if I understand the Niantic ToS correct it should not be allowed to take over someone elses account, even if the person does not want to play any longer. I have read of someone who admitted in comm that he is using an account that was started in a large city by a family member. This member does not want to play any more and player number 2 took over this account.

To me this does not sound legit. What do you think?

    Level and achievements were...achieved by Player one,not by Player two,so that's kind of Account sharing,which is ToS-restricted. New player should create new account,imo.

    Sharing, selling or trading accounts is defined in the ToS as cheating and can result in immediate termination. But accusing another player of cheating is also a violation of the ToS. If you have actual evidence, report it directly to Niantic otherwise it's just hearsay.
