ou qu'ills pourraient l'être
Explanation:
"they" se rapporte bien sûr à "services".
Ce que ça veut dire c'est qu'il se procure frauduleusement des services payants (qui ont été, sont ou seront réglés, ou qui "pourraient l'être" [réglés donc])

Il ne manque pas "made" puisqu'il y est déjà !

Pardon je corrige, je veux dire "ou qu'ils pourraient l'être" (sous entendu "made available", mis à disposition, fournis et pas "réglés" comme j'ai dit plus haut.
Mais ça ne change pas ma réponse.

agree  Tony M: Yes, the comma should be before not after the 'and' — and it would have been clearer if there'd been an additional comma after 'them'.
