Detecting group review spam


It is well-known that many online reviews are not written by genuine users of products, but by spammers who write <i>fake reviews</i> to promote or demote some target products. Although some existing works have been done to detect fake reviews and individual spammers, to our knowledge, no work has been done on detecting spammer groups. This paper focuses on this task and proposes an effective technique to detect such groups.
