As social networks offer a vast amount of additional information to enrich standard learning algorithms, the most challenging part is extracting relevant information from networked data. Fraudulent behavior is imperceptibly concealed both in local and relational data, making it even harder to define useful input for prediction models. Starting from expert(More)
Given a labeled graph containing fraudulent and legitimate nodes, which nodes group together? How can we use the riskiness of node groups to infer a future label for new members of a group? This paper focuses on social security fraud where companies are linked to the resources they use and share. The primary goal in social security fraud is to detect(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o In the last decade, the ease of online payment has opened up many new opportunities for e-commerce, lowering the geographical boundaries for retail. While e-commerce is still gaining popularity, it is also the playground of fraudsters who try to misuse the transparency of online purchases and the transfer of credit card records. This(More)
Fraud is a social process that occurs over time. We introduce a new approach, called AFRAID, which utilizes active inference to better detect fraud in time-varying social networks. That is, classify nodes as fraudulent vs. non-fraudulent. In active inference on social networks, a set of unlabeled nodes is given to an oracle (in our case one or more fraud(More)
