LOL, This explains a fair bit about Facebook

& why they appear to have restricted group admin tools & search functions
2 great videos part way down the page from a guy that researched why.

Fraud? Yeah right. Facebook are a business that charge you for advertising. Pretty standard.

I run a business page - you need to pay for your followers to see your posts. It makes sense. otherwise it'd be free advertising.

Deliberately restricting your selected audience & not telling you is a pretty sneaky way to force you to pay for more advertising which mostly comes from 'click' farms anyway.
Partly due to the vast number of groups & partly with FB's system would help explain why some groups, Eg: A "pay it Forward group" with 15K members in the Waikato area, only generates upwards of 20 listings & 40 comments per day total, at best (most days).

I see it myself as 1 admin of 3 admins in a group that we each get different notifications of whats happening on that group in the same minute.
#1 will be alerted about blah blah & #2 will be alerted about bleh bleh & #3 will get alerts about blurk blurk with some intermixing where we all get the same alerts.
Yes different houses so yes, different ip's.

The click farms thing is BS too. Whenever I pay to promote my business posts, I get genuine interaction and comments. If these people are bots, they're pretty amazingly life-like - especially when I meet them and work for them.
