If it's actually a copy of an existing answer, then I report the answer as "reposted", report the user as "abusive/trolling", and tend to report them here for plagiarism.

Otherwise, I tend to do the same as you: "not an answer" on the answer, possibly with a comment, and sometimes an "abusive" report on the user if they're a repeat offender.
