Read the terms and conditions - they can withold the lot.

Exactly. Keep in mind that Google audits accounts for the periods that are payable -- not just something that happened this past week.

My question is because, Im paying for traffic, but, I only want to be sure that Im going to get the money that I already have in the "pending payment", and do not loose more money buying traffic during the current month.

The only way to be safe, then, is not to pay for traffic. Or limit your budget to what you can afford to absorb if you lost all your unpaid earnings. Or gradually build up a reserve.

Theoretically you could lose up to something like 7 weeks revenue. Good reason to only buy traffic from respectable sources.

plus, purchased traffic is in my opinion a VERY risky type of traffic for Adsense, as it has some characteristics (referrers, just to mention one) that are statistically quite different from "regular" traffic.
Therefore, you have higher chances to trigger certain "flags" of the click-fraud detecting algo.

You will get:
Valid clicks MINUS Invalid clicks = BALANCE OWED
If you have lots of invalid clicks, then significant portion of your payment may be deducted by Google.
Well, at least that's how it should be, but in reality, if your website receives invalid clicks, your account will be disabled and Google will pay you $0 and 0 cents.
