Like Shailesh549, my 3-year old Adsense account was disabled for an unexplained reason (click fraud was not cited) right when they were supposed to be sending me a check for $100+. And, I can't get far enough away from them. In fact, I'm a little afraid of them because I know they are a criminal organization.
They are not accredited by the Better Business Bureau, who in fact, give them a very low rating because of their lack of customer services and fraudulent practices with regard to making payments.

Accounts are rarely re-instated because the charges against the account holder are fraudulent. AdSense just wants your money and your labor.
Lifeisabeach, it is against Google Adsense Terms to create another account after they have stolen your first one. It will just be disabled, too. They'll probably wait until you've done some work for them first, though, so they can really screw you good!
