This his been discussed at length in other threads here. Search Webmaster World on "invalid clicks," and you should find all kinds of information.

Thanks ive done the search.. I couldnt seem to find anything in regards to google disabling accounts.

Has anyone had an account disabled and had google reinstate it?

Its a little odd that they would disable an account and hold funds when you are following their TOS.

This is the fundamental flaw of Adsense, no one knows what a "invalid click" is, how it is caused (other than clicking your own ads), and how it can be avoided.

I would imagine that they are working on a system to track clicks with more detail, with a better system of keeping invlaid clicks at bay.

Did you lose your account for invalid clicks?

Yes, I lost my account for invalid clicks. I am going to send an email soon, I was just wondering what experiences others have had, and if google plans on paying me the money I have accumultated for the previous month, as well as how to avoid sending "invalid" clicks and how to resolve it.

I think the only way G can be sure about "invalid click" -> disabling account,
is if you, from the IP you use to log etc in AdSense program, _do_ make the "invalid clicks".
It would be amazing if anybody can break the competitors TOS invalidclicking their ads, I mean.
