and get banned.
If this will happen one day, I don't have any clue how to evidence to Google that it wasn't me. Such action can do anybody.
I am asking this because a few weeks ago I noticed some clicks from unidentified site. This keeps happening every day with 1 or 2 clicks (few cents). I am worried because I can not find source from clicks are generated and if there's someone saying "Visit our sponsors", "Support us" on Ad following my pub-id. I doubt it is from some traffic exchange program because there's no big fluctuaions about impressions and they are also very well monitored.

It really isn't our job to monitor where clicks are coming from, and in any case, I doubt if Google is going to ban you for a few cents per day in clicks from unknown sources--at least if you have an otherwise legitimate and useful site. Could your site pass the "sniff test" if it were flagged for a manual review? Does it have intrinsic value for users, above and beyond the AdSense ads? Those are the things you should be worrying about--not the remote possibility that someone might subscribe you to some kind of traffic- or click-exchange program.
Is it's any reassurance, I've been the victim of click attacks on two occasions, and I still have my AdSense account.

yes ann, there's many ways how publishers are not able to protect their accounts. should google take some actions about this? even it is pub-id, I'd recommend them to let us to add our URLs manually (where should ads appear) through our adsense account.
