Nowadays, most transactions take place online, which means that credit cards and other online payment systems are involved. This method is convenient for the company and the customer. The digital age seems to have provided some very useful features that have changed the way businesses and consumers interact, but for a charge. “Credit card fraud” outlays the card industry literally billions of dollars a year. Financial institutions are constantly striving to improve fraud detection systems, but at the same time, fraudsters are finding new ways to break into systems. Preventing and detecting “Credit card fraud” has become an emergency. Data mining techniques can be very useful in detecting financial fraud, as large and complex financial data processing poses major challenges for financial institutions. In recent years, several studies have used machine learning and data mining techniques to combat this problem. The main aim of this paper is to implement the performance of the machine learning based classifiers on Credit card fraud detection dataset.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
