Adsense bot fraud clics

    Hello
    i am running a 30 000 user forum and using Adsense since 10 years without any issue.
    Since mid december, my daily revenue increased by x10.
    I thought it was the effect of Black Friday/Cyber monday, but phenomena keeps going until the 20 of January this year. Google team suspended my acccount for illegal traffic.
    The 20 of February, I turned on ads display again and issue remained...
    I think i am victim of bot click fraud, but not able to identify them.
    Do you guys have an idea of to get rid of this ?
    Currently, i turned ads display Off and alerted Google teams about this.
    Thanks for reading.

    You need to contact their support. I doubt anyone can help you here. Accounts do get disabled for invalid traffic:

    Artificial impressions and clicks that are generated through automated means such as a bot or deceptive software, are prohibited. Automated traffic can be generated by a publisher, or can be received through purchased traffic. It’s important to review traffic sources before you decide to work with a traffic source. Be aware of programs that check links within your site, YouTube channel, or app, as they may click on ad links as well.

    There was some WordPress plugin for blocking click fraud on ads, but I don't know what CMS you use. First talk with Adsense support, then find a solution like the one in my example to prevent future attacks.
