    If it is unatural links then check this thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/419816-guide-google-webmaster-tools-notice-detected-unnatural-links.html

    apart from that what sort of links have you been building?

    Not necessarily, but what does your anchor text look like?

    What type of variation are you using?

    Are you using the same anchor text for each link?

    Your anchor text should include naked urls, your brand name (if you have one), and other anchors such as "click here" "get more info"...etc...

    Mix up your anchor text so you are not always using your keywords in the anchor link.

    Don't use your keyword in the links you create greater than 50% of the time. So that means, 50% of the time you are building links that look natural.

    A naked URL is using http://site.com as your anchor text, rather than using some keywords. Mix it up with your keywords, use similar ones. You could use Google Keyword Tool to get ideas for this (or a thesaurus).

    In this case, you simply have to go through and do the leg work and check them, then remove the bad ones. Check specifically for the urls, if the links are live and where/how they lead to your site and where/how they land on your site, etc.

    Don't remove your old backlinks. It doesn't help and it will probably even harm your site as it is sort of an admission of guilt on your part. Just keep building backlinks with better quality to get out of your penalty.

    this is true too...and the probability of getting your links removed is zero to none, so it could be an exercise of futility...

    i received the same penalty, but i decided not to do this as it would take more time to do this then i think it would take to recover naturally...

    Even though, I see the thinking behind it, it actually has the opposite effect, bud.

    If you KNOW there are bad links in your site and you are being given a penatly for it, there is no amount of further backlinking that will remove it in a wash. You have to find the link google is pointing out and remove that sucker.

    However, in our favor, google could give us a freakin' bone on which one they are upset with...but that's too easy.

    Really?...I once took down about 50 bad links that caused a penalty for a site about 6 months ago. It was otherwise a very good site that was ranking well. I never recovered. Maybe it works now.

    Well, it is like anything else...once you get the bad out of the way, you have to revalue the site by pushing it with targeted authority linkjuice, that comes with information and unique content...not to mention, you don't know how they gauge the penalty grade, duration and impact, etc.

    You have to dig 5x's as hard to recover and redeem yourself once you are busted.

    If it's an algorithmic penalty, don't worry about your old bad links, keep working on building some quality ones. Use something like link bait to get good organic links, try to rely less on making them yourself, take advantage of social media for keeping your followers (or potential ones) up to date with your site/products, but also interact with others in your market sector on there (for example, a site that compliments rather than competes). I'm assuming what you got is algorithmic. So, you'll get the automated message, then at some point after you'll drop. After a while, you'll start to recover though.

    If it's algorithmic, you don't need to get rid of those bad links as they have already been discounted by Google.

    I totally agree that they have discounted it, however it still is an issue if it is linked to the site and as the site owner, that person is getting the penalty by association.

    That being the case, the problem is still there and still has to be removed.

    The problem isn't there as the links have been discounted already, rankings have dropped (because the links have lost value), so it's just time to move forward and not waste effort on trying to undo past mistakes.

    You seem to be more thinking of recovery from a manual penalty, which the OP hasn't got.

    @wwexc, it could just be Google Dance. Sounds like it's a new site, so that would explain it (drop and no warning).
