Experiencing crazy click fraud. Google has been reimbursing but this is has become a daily problem. The term is a money term so pausing forever is not something we want to do.

Have you tried blocking IP's?

You can get IP's if you use analytics that provides this. Google Analytics won't give you that info. Many hosts provide log file analytics for free.

Another option is to look into some of the anti ppc fraud companies.

You don't need analytics at all. Look at your raw logs. If the host doesn't make them available, it's time to change :)

They must be spoofing b/c I don't see any blaring numbers of repeated IPs.
