Adwords banned for fake traffic.

I bough traffic for my site a few months ago before I ever did anything with adwords. When I started my adwords campaign a week ago, apparently the traffic was still coming a little (thought this has ended a while ago) and now my site is banned from the network for fake traffic. Anything I can do about it now? The traffic stopped like 5 days ago once I realized what was going on.

AdWords policy is subjected to "webmaster Guideline". Illegitimate techniques to increase your "page rank" are inconsistent with webmaster guideline - thus are prohibited.

Please review webmaster tools guidelines.
