    Somebody, probably my competitors in CL and Backpage has been clicking on my ads for 5 consecutive days.

    The problem with this is I can't put Adsense ad on my site if this continue. Is there a tool to prevent this kind of click attack?

    Email Google and tell them about it. Most likely they're not going to even respond to you, but at least you let them know that someone else is doing it else it'll look like *you're* committing click fraud. Then wait happily for your check and cash in. :p

    why don't u ban their IP with htaccess/mod rewrite? you could even use a redirect site to filter these IP's before they get to your main page...

    CL ad ==> filter IPs ===> main site w/adsense
