    That's pretty much the only solution. Unless you can find out the perps ip. But that information might not help you anyway (aside from banning that ip from accessing your site (maybe tell Google the person's ipo?)). Stick with contacting Google immediately.

    2 or 3 clicks isn't a click attack, but if you recieved substantially more than that then you should contact Google. Believe it or not, they actually don't like recieving thousands of emails every day.

    If you have access to their IP address then you should ban them within your .htaccess file - you might even consider using the % wildcard to ban the subnet, just until they go away.

    The OP may not be banned yet but as he said, he afraid he will be.

    I believe you should do both. Inform Adsense about it via email and find a way to ban those IPs that's trying to get you banned.

    Good luck.

    Stop putting all your faith in Adsense and diversify into other sources of revenue for your sites (and stop "making sites for Adsense") and then you won't have to spend sleepless nights worrying about mythical "click attacks". If any one source of revenue has more than 30% of your total income stream, you are asking for trouble.
