Groan.  Not again.  Please review the following:


4.2.2  Initial allocations to ISPs.  In fact, this entire page.  If
an org is purely legacy, and they are getting their first allocation under
if they claim they have met "efficient utilization" for their first
allocation, they are committing fraud if they have under utilized /8's
floating around.


If an org requests additional space, and doesen't have efficient utilization
of existing space, this is also fraud.

You can have both fraud and breach of contract for the same action,
of course.

Fraud is criminal not civil.  Whistleblower protections apply.
