I guess I'm wondering if there is a problem to solve? I thought that this
came up at a recent policy meeting; it "looks" like we aren't doing
anything, but in fact we are and that statistics would be posted to
demonstrate e.g. we have stats on fraud reporting and they clearly
demonstrate what some think is fraud really isn't.

Any way we can demonstrate if there really is a problem before writing a
proposal that is likely to be very difficult to reach consensus?

Best,
