  author={Ahmed Seid Yesuf and Lars Wolos and Kai Rannenberg},
Telecom providers are losing tremendous amounts of money due to fraud risks posed to Telecom services and products. Currently, they are mainly focusing on fraud detection approaches to reduce the impact of fraud risks against their services. However, fraud prevention approaches should also be investigated in order to further reduce fraud risks and improve the revenue of Telecom providers. Fraud risk modelling is a fraud prevention approach aims at identifying the potential fraud risks… 

Using Fraud Patterns for Fraud Risk Assessment of E-services

This paper analysed real fraud incidents from an e-service domain – Telecom, and identified six fraud patterns, which are recurrently used to commit fraud, and showed their applicability to fraud risk assessment.

MP-RA: Towards a Model-Driven and Pattern-Based Risk Analysis of e-Service Fraud

A framework for a Model-driven and Pattern-based Risk Analysis of e-service fraud (MP-RA), which aims to increase understanding of the target of assessment (ToA) by representing using graphical models, identify potential threat scenarios from the perspective of fraudsters using existing threat models and estimate the damage of threat scenarios for the main actor by which the analysis is intended for.
