That's implicit in the idea of someone else using an account tied to you. But the issue is the same: What recourse does the legitimate user have, even if Amazon had good reason to suspend the account (like a thief using the legit person's ID)? The answer is seeming to be "Very little." AKA "Too bad, so sad, all your ebooks and albums are gone and there's nothing you can do about it."
Worse, (well, maybe worse) is that Amazon isn't telling you why. So you can't even report the thief to the authorities, or smack your pirate son-in-law or whatever.
