The point is, darling dear, that you don't act on what you don't know.
The point is you said...
Which isn't true.
Read it again (or possibly for the first time). That's _estimates_ of fraud, not actual known-and-counted cases. They _know_ they haven't got them all, that's how many they reckon they've not got. They could be wrong, but they've got margins of error and a degree of confidence that they're not a million miles off.
I suggest you read it. By definition they haven't a clue what goes unreported.

The estimates do not encompass all fraud and error. This is because
fraud is, by its nature, a covert activity, complex official error can be
difficult to identify and some suspicions of fraud on the sample cases
cannot be proven. For example, unreported earnings in the informal
economy will be much harder to detect than those in the formal economy.
What is good news is that is they get workfare off the ground fraud is likely to reduce. It's harder to work on the side when you've to turn up somewhere official every day.
