There's a fraud reporting process: https://www.arin.net/resources/fraud/
If you submit information regarding an address block which you suspect
was obtained via fraudulent means (e.g. hijacking, improper

fraudulent misrepresentation to ARIN, we will reclaim the resources

If reported via the fraud reporting process, we will indeed follow-

contacts are no longer valid) unless the information shows that the
original block holder's application for space was fraudulent.
