Adsense account blocked!!

My friend’s google adsense publisher account was blocked a fortnight back. What was more annoying was that google had 45.34$ due to him. But they confiscated the entire amount. It took thousands of impression and clicks and to 2 months wait to earn 45.34$. But it all went away in a stroke.
Initially when  the website was first launched, it hardly earned 0.1$ per day but eventually it had some traffic and started making some money, google blacklisted him. Google paid him nothing for displaying adds 24*7 for 60 days.
One morning he woke up to be greeted by this message from google

I googled for days and days together and came to know that adsense blacklists publisher and not the website itself. So I advised my friend to use some other adsense publisher to activate adsense for his website. Initially Google approved the account and his website again featured advertisements from adsense, it had accumulated around 2$, when google again blocked him siting that this account was linked with a blocked account. This was completely disastrous, why did google approve the new account, when it had to disapprove it later on. Is it a ploy of Google to flourish at our cost?

After months of survey, I really found this to be a common problem of many adsense publishers. Many have lost as much as 200$ for one reason or the other. Its true that google is strict rather it is very strict. But at the same time it is not completely unjustified. Ofcourse google has to look after it’s adsense advertisers money. It is google’s strictness that has made it no 1 choice for all the advertisers.
