For actual or suspected fraud, I agree with the overall sentiment of your
post. Much of this discussion doesn't make me suspect fraud with examples
used FWIW. This is operational.

In the case of having resources SWIP'd to an ORG that isn't actually using
them, it would seem very reasonable to instead request that the ORG remove
the SWIP record pointing at you and if they don't in a reasonable period of
time simply ask hostmaster at arin.net to do it via a CC of the request to the
ORG that created the record. This works like a champ (for me).

I don't really know how the fraud process internally works and if it is
actually a fire drill, but why start a one for normal, day to day,
operational issues?
