I never contacted Google as the increased CTR returned to normal, this was a few weeks ago.
I have no idea what Google detected, could be they recently spotted something or it could be something from months ago. Email i received from Google simply said they had detected fraudulent clicks and were refunding some money.

It's not always easy to monitor all datas, and as long as the action rate is not too badly touched..

i ask because I wonder if they refunded you because you are a big spender, where they may not listen to a regular person...

Google are in the process of taking an Adsense publisher to court for fraudulently clicking on ads to generate income for themselves, and even this might be a scapegoat case it certainly should send out a message to Adsense publishers that Google take the whole issue of click fraud seriously.
It has to do this really because advertisers depend on the integrity of the traffic source. Without this the market wouldn't exist. Imagine the carnage at your local bank with no security guards etc..

A funny thing happened.... The day I implemented the code im google landing page and created the tracking URL.....I saw my CTR rate drop from an average of 6-7% down to 3-3.5%!!! I also notice the impressions have been about half of what they were prior to the Fraud implementation.....
Anyone car to share some insight ???

those click frauds.

yeah, unfortunately Google doesn't take the issue of Click fraud seriously enough themselves imo. To them, one person clicking on your ad every day for a year is just fine. I signed up for a different fraud detection service and couldn't believe what I saw....[/quote]
