    It wouldn’t surprise me if the figures are over inflated.  But choosing a random sample and then extrapolating is an accepted statistical technique for estimation.  Choosing a representative sample and asking the right questions is difficult but the approach is sound.
    Also this quote, “… since no one can claim negative losses, the error can’t be canceled.”  People can (and probably do) underreport or fail to report losses.

    Certainly we should be as worried about these phishers as our elders were of dippers, flimps, and mutchers.
