Summary: Online payment fraud is rated as the most critical threat to online businesses and causes massive losses every year. Effective approaches to discovering patterns related to fraudulent online payments are urgently required to filter e-payment transactions ''''on-the-fly'''' and estimate their risk of fraud. We will investigate real-life rare but significant fraudulent transactions in order to develop novel and workable algorithms, toolboxes and a system prototype for the pattern analysis and risk control of e-payment transactions. The project will contribute to the instant detection and prevention of real-time risky e-payments, and improve the confidence of e-payment acquirers and card associations.'',
