Does Google AdWords Monitor Landing Pages?

A Search Engine Watch Forums thread suggests that Google AdWords is not monitoring landing pages. Discovery caught a screenshot of a deceptive landing page with Javascript that tried to make a user go to a page that he/she hasn't tried to access.

Doesn't Google have an obligation to stop this? Perhaps better phrased, doesn't Google say that it looks for these violations of its TOS?

The thought, perhaps, is that these are relatively new landing pages and Google hasn't crawled them. But still, perhaps they should whenever a new URL is entered into the system to avoid giving off the perception that there is some sort of deception going on. Regardless, it looks like a flagrant violation that needs to be addressed, and in most cases, it would be seen as Google's responsibility to clean them up.

What are your thoughts?
