If you are reporting on moral grounds because what they are doing is fraud and theft then no problem. However a fair bit of what you say sounds personal and self involved, all about what they have and you don't etc. think about why you have a problem with it, then you can respond in a suitable manner without jumping the gun.
Is it the big picture of the fact they are scamming and defrauding the pension system? Or because you feel personally annoyed and it becomes a vendetta, revenge, lesson teaching experience.

Interesting that Centrelink is so slack in investigating, we had to fight, claw and defend our right to help when I managed to get out of an abusive relationship. We nearly lost everything and I was terrified we were going to end up homeless as they delayed and made me supply more and more evidence. I begged them to come investigate the house but they said it was too far for them to bother.
Thankfully a family friend found us an old vacant house so we had a roof over our heads.

Yes I have mentioned that we are hard working and do the right thing but this is to demonstrate my morals and beliefs and why I feel frustrated that these people are ripping off tax payers by the thousands.
Again I have mentioned their luxury items but again just to demonstrate that they are not struggling financially and are actually taking holidays thanks to stealing money from centrelink.
And certainly I am not jumping the gun since I have had this argument with myself for years, the should I or shouldn't make a report. I have many times said to the offending person 'aren't you worried about getting caught?'
The purpose of the OP was to get an idea of what others would do because if this was someone I didn't personally know I would dob them in in a heartbeat, my dilemma is I know this person and would witness the fall out.

So even when you reread and question what you have said you feel it is a moral choice, all I did was have you answer your own question.
Well then report them, obviously you are comfortable with your reasons and have no reason to question reporting them.
You have to do what is comfortable for you, you know what they are doing is fraudulent and criminal, enabling them to continue to reporting are your choices.

I'd send them the anonymous letter.
Say in the letter you know what they have been doing and that it's been going on too long. If they don't stop, you will report.
This gives them the chance to finally do the right thing. If they keep claiming their payments, I say report them.
If they end up being punished by the law, then so be it. They know what they are doing is wrong, yet they continue to take the risk.

If you go the anonymous letter route don't forget to cut out letters from a magazine and stick them on instead of writing it (works in the movies lol)
