Bill - 
 
  We investigate all Internet number resource fraud reports that are 
  submitted to <https://www.arin.net/resources/fraud/index.html>  We 
  do not investigate allegations made on the mailing lists, and for 
  the sake of the mailing list subscribers do not intend to change 
  that practice.

  Findings of Internet number resource fraud reports are posted on 
  online also at <https://www.arin.net/resources/fraud/index.html>. 
  We've also increased the level of detail in the findings reports
  in recent quarters per community request.

  (As I have noted already, Ron has submitted several number resource 
  fraud reports recently which have resulted in more than a dozen 
  address blocks being reclaimed as a result...)
