I have just received the below email from Google:


After reviewing our records, we've determined that your AdSense account
poses a risk of generating invalid activity. Because we have a
responsibility to protect our AdWords advertisers from inflated costs due
to invalid activity, we've found it necessary to disable your AdSense
account. Your outstanding balance and Google's share of the revenue will
both be fully refunded back to the affected advertisers.

Please understand that we need to take such steps to maintain the
effectiveness of Google's advertising system, particularly the
advertiser-publisher relationship. We understand the inconvenience that
this may cause you, and we thank you in advance for your understanding and

If you have any questions or concerns about the actions we've taken, how
you can appeal this decision, or invalid activity in general, you can find

Okie, whatever. I'm not really earning a lot of money on it anyway. But the thing is, I saw in their Google Help Forum that a lot of people also encounter the same issue and their adsense accounts never got reinstated back despite appealing for it. Now, I really wonder.. Is the sentence in bold true? Do they really return the revenue back to their adwords advertisers or just eat up the money?
