We've seen that as well. Spam site ranking number one for a highly profitable keyword (we're talking about millions of dollars). It's not really enough to say that these kinds of strategies work sometimes, and that they may work for years. This site couldn't care less. They'll just create another site and do the same thing over again. It's the genuine companies who work really hard and conduct honest white hat SEO that suffers. The fact that Google can't detect these obvious offenders, is disconcerting and makes me seriously doubt the effectiveness of their spam filters.
You can try sending in complaints, but I doubt they look at more than 0.01% of them.
