I think it doesn't matter if there is click fraud or not. You simply have to see if your campaign is profitable or not. For me it didn't worked when I tried last year for 3 months so I stopped and now planning to try again. I think when business is new you should evaluate carefully what works and what not. Otherwise you might be spending lot on adsense and not making a little money.

Aside from my view that click fraud is overstated let me play devils advocate and assume maybe 30% of all clicks via Adwords ads are fraudulent - thats 70% of the advertising reaching 100% targeted individuals (legit keyword searchers). Compare that % to any kind of other advertising - a 70% direct hit on the people who want to buy your products - thats amazing!!

I think there will be always a % of click fraud and you just have to calculate that into your campaigns so you still profit.
