Ok, I have noticed quite a bit of earnings being taken away. It seems to be getting worse by the day. For instance, the today's earnings show some number with channels showing some number. When logging in at a later time on the same day these numbers have all decreased...this has been a significant amount of money across several domains.

Anyone else have this issue?

No, performing up to usual expectations so far today.

What I'm asking is... have you ever seen "today's earnings" display one number then log in 1 hour later and your "today's earnings" are much lower.

No no.. I haven't faced such scenario in 2 years, but, I assume this is because of click fraud check which has taken away your earnings.

I thought the first time was a delay, but this is the 3rd time it has happened recently. Where did that money go? Credited back to the advertiser? Do advertisers see adsense website click credits?

I think the thing is, Google validating clicks...

Just once. I checked my earnings at the end of the month, last day, just before midnight and the morning after I had the same amount less a few cents. Yes, it was only a few cents but yes, taken away. I guess those were invalid clicks

I've seen it in my AdSense account, but never for more than a few cents up to maybe a buck.

On the other hand, for the various AdWords accounts that I work on for clients, there are refunds for invalid clicks every single month - and some times they're considerable. I assume at least some of those are probably coming off of someone's AdSense.

I noticed it the other day. It showed x amount as total, yet later when I checked again (only about 20 mins later) it dropped by about 9c

Not when looking intra-day, but I had a similar experience when I looked at daily values at the end of the month. Here and there I noticed what I would say were "corrections", but -as Netmeg- never more than maybe a Dollar or so.

But I have stopped bothering with Adsense on such a detailed level (well, in fact, I have stopped bothering with mostly anything related to Adsense). I realized that at the end there is no way to prove what has happened anyway. What is a single Adsense publisher going to do if you see this again and again? Write to Google and complain? Good luck with that. Make your webmaster colleagues aware and stirr a riot? There are certainly bigger issues with Google than that.

AGREED
