I recently checked my payments for the last few months and noticed that a significant amount of my payment gets deducted under "Invalid Traffic - AdMob Applications - AdWords Ads." I know in the Google policy it says this can come from invalid clicks, however, this is not coming from anyone on the dev team. My account has not been limited in any way, and there is no anomalies in the number of clicks I am receiving. 

For reference, last month about 45% of my payment got deducted because of this.

Thank you for my reply. Unfortunately, I am just running a banner ad at the bottom of the screen. This banner has been there for several years and it is only within the last two months that this problem has been occurring. Unless Google does not allow banner ads at the bottom of the screen as of two months ago, then nothing else has changed

Same thing happened to us.
We are placing banners and interstitial ads and have been using those for years. Suddenly it is labeled as invalid traffic.
At least, we would expect, that Google AdMob is letting you know which is the causing part of this.

I lost all of my income to "Invalid Traffic - AdMob Applications - AdWords Ads" last month.
I've been using admob for over 3 years and I only use banner ads. Moreover, the ad placement hasn't changed since the app's launch.
This is getting worse overtime.
