Last semester I used Google with some success, but Reuters had an
article last week that identified http://www.schoolsucks.com as a major
paper mill.  They also directed teachers to: http://www.turnitin.com
which "takes a digital fingerprint of the student's paper, then scans
the Internet and the group's own database looking for matches,
highlighting passages that match and providing links to the online
source" and http://www.findsame.com "a search engine that scans the Web
for matching sentences or whole documents, instead of just keywords." I
also came upon: http://www.cheathouse.com/uk/peek/list/ham.html "the
evil house of cheat" that lists about a thousand essays for free
download on Shakespeare alone.  It makes for fun reading. Here's a
sample:

Oedipus: The Natures of Man, grade: 98%, authors comments: "Much BS",
teacher comments "Excellent Work, Very Informative"

Two of the sources listed in The Paper Store's network of term paper
sites are http://www.ethicspapers.com and
http://www.academicintegrity.com.

I don't recommend going to these guys for a paper on irony.
