They sold there amex points from time to time
How? Give someone access to their account, transfer to a travel partner in their name, transfer to travel partner in AU's name or something else?

Time has shown discussing amex A/A publicly on this forum leading to more amex A/A. This entire mess was arguably caused by discussing amex A/A publicly. Maybe the conversation can be taken to a more appropriate venue?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Here's what they're emailing out on clawbacks:

Information about your Membership Rewards account
 
 We are writing to let you know that, after careful review of your Membership Rewards® account activity, we have removed points in your Membership Rewards program account. Please ensure that any Additional Card Members who are authorized to redeem points from your account are notified of this change in your Membership Rewards balance.
 
Why we are removing these points
We recently noticed point accrual and redemption activity on your
Membership Rewards program account that indicates an effort to obtain and use points in a manner that is not appropriate. It’s important for you to know that the
Membership Rewards program terms and conditions state that “if you attempt to use or obtain points in a fraudulent way, we may:
 
Take away all points in your program account,
Cancel your program account, or
Cancel any of your American Express Cards”
 
Your options
If you have any questions about this email, or if you believe that the points have been removed in error, please call us at 1-800-AXP-EARN (1-800-297-3276).
 
Thank you for your Card Membership.

Seems like they are claiming fraud. Not very smart on their part.

the only reason these things are happening is because there is public discussion regarding these topics
