Hello Jose,

We have reviewed your circumstances and have reinstated your account, effective immediately. Please note that there will be a delay of up to 48 hours before our servers are informed of the update and ads start running on your website again.

Based on the findings of our investigation, we have deducted $315.89 from your account. This amount represents the earnings previously credited to your account from invalid clicks. The deduction should occur in your next scheduled payment.

For your reference, we've included some short guidelines to assist you in preventing invalid clicks in the future:

It is against our program policies for website publishers to click on the ads on their own web pages, or to encourage others to do so. In addition, the use of automated techniques to generate clicks, such as robots or scripts, is prohibited.

If you would like to visit the destination of an ad to view its content or to add it to your filter list, you can use the AdSense Preview Tool, available here:

The Google AdSense preview tool is an addition to the right-click menu for Windows Internet Explorer 6.x, allowing you to preview the ads that may show on any web page. Clicks and impressions from the preview tool are not applied to the advertiser's account. You can click through to the target site without worrying about invalid clicks being generated on your account, and without costing the advertiser for your test clicks.

Finally, please be sure to review and remain in compliance with our Terms and Conditions and program policies:

If you have any questions, please feel free to respond to this email.

i do not know if i'll restore google adsense ads on my sites. you'll notice some adbright ads around though. i installed those last night, but they haven't yet worked out for lots of revenue.

still sore at google, and very pissed that they insinuate to everyone that i'm involved in click fraud.
