There are tools and consultants that can help you.

And the big issue with click fraud is that it isn't small numbers of
people making small amounts of cash, it is large scale abuse using
trojan type techniques that install rogue dll's on vast numbers of
pc's that is of greater concern.

Overture WILL make refunds, read this blog regarding the case study :

The refunds can be large and they can be made quickly, just keep in
mind that Overture cannot detect all types of fraud, you have to show
the evidence, that often means recruiting a clickfraud consultant.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: But some companies doing this sort of
work -- Google for instance -- seem almost paranoid about webmasters
and others trying to cheat them. But I have news for Google, some
webmasters are honest people also trying to earn a decent living. PAT]
