Since the beginning of this month, a lot of Pokemon GO players are receiving a notification warning and most of the cheaters tried to break down Niantic’s rules. Unfortunately, not all of them managed to win the battle as Niantic started sending out their permaban hammer.
The banning started yesterday and as expected Niantic has successfully tracked down cheaters and spoofers. As reported, lots of accounts that are suspected and associated with third-party apps like fake GPS hits the permaban. As of this moment, it seems like Niantic is only targeting iOS users who are using third-party apps.

Although there are few reports of Android users who also got hit by the ban hammer, it is guaranteed that Niantic will also be tracking down accounts that are using such apps. There are is no specific date but expect to see the ban hammer in the next few days.
In an email sent by an official Niantic support:
In Pokemon Go, we take fairness seriously and want to provide an accessible, fun and equal game experience to all Trainers. We recently pushed some updates that have placed a lock on certain accounts that have been found to not be playing within our Trainer Guidelines and Terms of Service.
