If we had the numbers it would be easy enough to calculate. There were
735,000 addresses involved. Roughly 20,000 of them (~3%) needed to be
transferred at $18 each to break even on the $350,000 ordered payment. How
many did ARIN decide not to reclaim because the recipients did not appear
to be part of the fraud? If it was more than 3% then you could reasonably
say the guy got away with it.
