    Hi members of forum,i had a bad experience finally with adsense when i got banned of my own miniature mistake and i dont hold anyone else responsible for that although i did mail them when i by mistake clicked my ad.Anyways as i was saying my acoount was going good enough and my first cheque worth 187$ was issued but some one week later i got the "You are Banned Mail".Now i received a cheque worth the amount i mentioned some one month back!BUT as i was banned after the issue date, i want to ask if it can be cashed or not?or shall i send it back to Google? any replies...

    I have heard of some cases where this happened and the check that has already been issued will be paid, but any earnings that haven't been sent yet will be cancelled.

    If you got a check and you honestly didn't do anything wrong, then you earned it. I'd cash it, at worst Google can put a stop payment on it.

    I would think that if you were banned after the issue date that the cheque should be good. (But I'm pretty new at this).

    You could try cashing, or email them to find out if it's still valid. I wouldn't send it back without speaking to them first. If you did indeed only click your own ad once by mistake, and you emailed them to let them know, then you earned that money.

    This is even worse than the guy who got banned for 50 random events.

    As others have said, if you got the check cash it... The worst they could do is have stopped payment on it.

    If it were a significant amount you run the chance of them suing you for back payments, but in your case that is not likely.

    Well... hope you enjoy the $187 you cheated out of Google... you would of earned hundreds or thousands more if you'd played by the rules...

    ROFL. Fryman, lighten up! He already said it was his own fault. My, you are one tough cookie. Take a couple of deep breaths in a paper bag and tell this guy that he deserves kudos for admitting he screwed up.

    Yeah, kudos for cheating Google and stealing money from advertisers!!

    Yeah, I guess you clicked on one ad by accident and bam! You got banned, right?

    Now where did I hear that before?...

    Whatever, dude, as we said, try to cash the check and see if you are lucky, but you won't be getting back into google's program again.

    I find it very strange that Google would be so nasty at penalising you just for a single click... I would guess that they had more on you than just one accidental click.
