I understand that.  Yes, low utilization doesn't create fraud per se, however
if somebody came to you and obtained X (e.g. a /19) by making representation
Y to you (e.g. we're gonna have 300 more customers and 10 additional routers
within six months) and if it turns out that representation Y was just bullcrap,
told to you to get you to part with resource X, well, then, that is pretty
much the dictionary definition of fraud.

You can call it whatever you like, but it is still fraud.

Sorry, but I have to ask... Does what you just said answer the question I
asked?  If so, how?  (Help me out here.  I guess that I'm a little slow on
the uptake, because I actually can't quite decypher how your answer relates
to the question I asked.)
