What I fail to understand is why these ongoing scams are only being
pursued in civil courts; as someone pointed out, there's obviously a
return on investment exceeding any likely fines, loss of reputation is
of no concern, and clearly ACCC actions are providing no real restraint. 

Surely obtaining money by deception and fraud are _criminal_ matters?
Call me naive, but why aren't these scoundrels being sent to prison?
