FraudNE: a joint embedding approach for fraud detection


Detecting fraudsters is a meaningful problem for both users and e-commerce platform. Existing graph-based approaches mainly adopt shallow models, which cannot capture the highly non-linear relationship between vertexes in a bipartite graph composed of users and items. To address this issue, in this paper we propose a joint deep structure embedding approach FraudNE for fraud detection that (a) can preserve the highly non-linear structural information of networks, (b) is robust to sparse networks, © embeds different types of vertexes jointly in the same latent space. It is worth mentioning that we can detect multiple fraudulent groups without the number of groups as a priori. Compared with baselines, our method achieved significant accuracy improvement.
