    well, we just that kind of issue as well. we talked to the google support, the tech team made a check and it was gone so far.
    did you check the dimension for invalid clicks in your campaigns as well? would be good to know the percentage value of invaild clicks
    google says 2 - 3 % invalid clicks are "normal". everything above 4% could be click fraud.
    also you can refine your campaign. you know where this dude is located. refine your location settings in your campaigns ;)

    If he is using proxies or similar you could simply block for proxy IP's I have seen this done by a few people running ADwords campaigns.

    A 2% or so invalid click rate is average for search campaigns. I've seen 20% for display campaigns. I think it's site owners clicking ads on their site to get more revenues. You need to remove those sites and report them to Google.

    If you are using a display campaign, are you mixing it with search? If so, not what you should do. In fact, should you even be using a display campaign? To me, it appears you may be using the platform wrong.

    Don't know such schemes exists. Maybe try new ad networks, focus more on social media ads. Buysellads also have a good range of sites and pricing.
