If you think about it, this is going to be pretty much an edge case though folks.
1. Find a hackable site with some good content that ranks well for terms that can be monetised by the spam site
2. Create a burner site and add all the content or add it to an existing spam site
3. Hack the site and put the redirects in place and 'hope' that google takes the 'hint' and redirects all worth to the spam site
I can't see this working in most cases. The spam site may have problems or it maybe a new site. There are no 301 redirects just hacked tags. The content is established on site A. The hacks may get a common signature that is easily detected by Google. The spam sites will likely be on different countries IP ranges, domains, in bad neighbourhoods etc.
Something else that we can kind of be aware off but in most cases, I would imagine this is not going to be a big money earner for those dastardly under-worldly sorts. :)
