I don't know what to tell you.  You are correct in your assertions.  This kind
of fraud is
very difficult to deal with,
I don't personnally do anything, but I can provide the information to malware
researchers
who keep track of the sites, deal ith the malware end collect evidence.

Yes.  CastleCops' Malware Incident Reporting and Termination (MIRT) deals with
these
issues.

Although I am not a MIRT member, I know many who are.
