Media Attention on Fraud

A reporter from eWeek magazine did a story on consumer fraud:

“Oraclexxxxxx.com recently became defunct and is now the subject of multiple Better Business Bureau complaints filed in Mr. Smith’s home state, New Jersey.   The portion of the BBB file that's publicly available states that the company has "an unsatisfactory record with the bureau due to unanswered complaint(s)." The complaints concern delivery issues and refund practices, according to the BBB.”

To my great shock, he admitted that he was enticing consumers into buying his products using a fake personality:

“Mr. Smith admitted that Allen, represented as having "over nine years of trial-and-error from painstaking research" and now acknowledged as "a promising top expert in the field of Oracle database security," is in fact a figment of his imagination. "There is no Robert Allen," he said. "It's a marketing figure. Is it ethical? No. Is it used in business often? Absolutely. Plenty of people utilize fictitious people in marketing their circumstances."

Why hadn’t the authorities from his home state charged him with any crimes?  According to eWeek, these types of activities rarely get the attention of the prosecutors because of the relatively small amounts of money involved.
