Credit card numbers in Google's index

I searched for the name of someone I know, and I found an .ru site that lists full credit card info including account numbers, CVVs, expiration dates, and addresses. Google has a page for removing such information from the index, but it is intended only for a person who is directly affected:

google.com/support/websearch/b ...

I do know one person whose CC info is disclosed on the site and in Google's index, but she and I are no longer on speaking terms (any sort of contact is simply not an option). The account information of dozens of other people is disclosed on this site anyway. What can I do to get this site removed from the index and taken down altogether?

If no other options appear within the next 24hrs, I'd simply send a snail-postcard to the nearest Google office – there are plenty of such allover the globe, here in Europe:

[ found at google.com/corporate/address.h ...]

listing the URL of the offending page and asking for its removal – as that "analog method" promises to be the quickiest, cheapest and easiest on the submitter.
