How high is the fine, how likely is it to get caught, how much is the profit due to the lie?

Whether it's legal or not is meaningless. When fine * chance is lower than revenue, it's a matter for finance, not for legal. Because then it's little more than a part of the calculation with tax reducing reserves "for possible legal fees" in the financial statements.
