When Google issues a check to a publisher it is for activity several weeks back. The suspicious activity they are banning for generally is recent - within the last couple of weeks. All of the money they are keeping for the most part would not be money earned from suspicious clicks that someone complained about and they need to refund. So that leads me to believe they are keeping the rest for themselves.
As well, according to their email, they will attempt to stop payment on previous checks issued.
Would you do business like this in the real, face-to-face world without getting sued?
