Should I contact Google?

    Hello.

    I've got adsense for a few months now and in this month I reached the 100$ mark, so I was really exited and I knew it would be "checked" from the 15th. (3 days ago)

    Then today when I checked yesterdays stast I noticed, that I've expierienced a really big increase in number of clicks. This is in no way a natural increase and I can also see that I haven't been paid for most of the many, many clicks, so there's without a doubt someone trying to ban my account by going on a clicking-spree.

    it's the first time it has happend.
    I'll get really dissapointed if google decides to ban me now that I've finally reached the mark and just waiting for a check.
    I was really afriad something like this was gonna happend.

    Log into your account ---you will find the contact info within.

    Always make it a point to check your adsense account at least twice a day. The Internet is full of malicious morons bent on nothing but ill will.

    Also check you server logs to help you pinpoint where the clicks are coming from.

    Also look for a good Adsense Tracker script.

    These tools will help you out just in case Google decides to shut down you account.

    Key Point: Anytime you notice anything irregular, pre-empt any possible negative action by Google by reporting it to them, preferably with evidence.

    I keep getting extremely many clicks - I would love to block my ads for this person and his ip, but I don't know who he is or what his Ip is.
    What is the name (link please) of the script/program which gives you reports of your adsense and can prevent click fraud by putting a limit on number of clicks pr. IP?

    I think there is a post here in the forum, seach for it.

    Also, can't you take out your ads? for a while, what if google blocks you before they reply to your letter

    And yes, I took of my ads after posting my last post. :)

    Still no luck. But thank you.

    Surely someone are able to remember the name of the program/script?

    If you think you're being bombarded with fradulent clicks, then remove the ads for the time being (as already suggested) - this will stand you in good stead with google, too.

    Juss,
    try http://www.adlogger.org/
    it's a free ad tracking tool which you can use to observe clicks with IPs. With this tool you can also block IP(s) of the person clicking many times as you wish.
