"Online fraud was the most commonly-reported offence"

Given that online fraud can be carried out by anyone anywhere in the world as long as they have access to the internet, it's hardly surprising that the police aren't able to prosecute anyone over most incidents. It would be much more meaningful to look at the rates of crime and prosecutions for actual white collar crimes, rather than lumping them together with everyone who sent money to a Nigerian prince.
