According to the fraud results page, ~2% (of 146) resulted in further
investigation.

 That''s a problem. Either. There is no real fraud or, ARIN is powerless to
deal with it. The last time ARIN updated the "Results" page appears to be
September 2014 based on the last noted ticket number of ARIN-20140929-F1760.

Some sort of additional resources like a FAQ on what might or might not be
out of scope could help to reduce the amount of baseless submissions as
well as additional questions on the form that if selected nack a report. If
staff isn't going to keep the page updated why keep it at all?

Best,
