That's not what I'm talking about - I mean the guy that doesn't log on,
but monitors for spots (and there are programs that let you do just that)
then somehow "magically" appears on frequency within seconds, submitting a
single-op log, of course.

This is not something that can be spoofed except if someone uses your call
to work the spotted station, then manages to put it in your log somehow.
Even a casual review of spots vs. the log would clearly show this

Yes, it's an "empty victory" for the cheater, but also a real
disappointment for the legitimate player who rapidly loses motivation to
go up against these guys year after year.
