Console Banning question

I've been reading the console banning forums and have seen this:

 

The conduct that caused this ban may include, but is not limited to:

 

•  Unauthorized account recovery or usage

•  Unauthorized purchases/redemptions on an account

•  Offering to buy, sell, lend, or transfer an account

•  Attempts to commit fraud

 

Is this a result of account hackings or something else? I'm not even really sure what an unauthorized account recovery or usage is.

Yup, pretty much what it sounds like. Using an account that's not yours and you don't have permission to use it.

What if you do have permission. Say a buddy loaned me his account to play for a week. Is that a bannable offense? I've never done it because I've had years stacked on my account. So just wondering.

It is against the code of conduct (Don’t lend, transfer, sell, or otherwise provide access to your account to any individual. ) so yes it is.

I'd imagine those kinds of bans are linked to UAI, phishing scam messages originating from GTs attached to that console etc. Not entirely sure how you'd be able to tell the difference between what Broker describes and illegitimate account recovery without that kind of proof.

EDIT: Or Swutches can just put it much better than I can.

To get a console ban for it, I bet they've had multiple stolen accounts linked to their consoles.

Ok, so I see that lending, transferring etc is against the rules. I like that idea actually. Play with what you have and if you don't have, do without. I've never done it so I have no idea. In case MS is reading this is want to strongly emphasize that I've never done it.
