So if a player makes an illegal placement and everyone misses it until end game scoring what do you do?
As far as I can see there's no penalty or mention in rules if someone does it either by mistake or deliberately.

Well, if you know who the culprit is I would eliminate them.

If not, just play around it as best you can, what else can you do?

You could remove the misplaced tile (and any meeple on it).

From the last page of the rules:

"If an offending tile is found only during final scoring, it is too late to correct the mistake. Complete scoring normally, including the offending tile."

and

"When a player places a terrain tile incorrectly, first apply the rules mentioned above. In addition, the offending player loses a prophet which is permanently removed from the game. If a prophet was on the offending tile, that prophet is the one that is removed from the game"

So the tile remains and any prophet on the tile is removed.

So as you can see from this post, trying to cheat voluntarily can cost you much !
