Title: Characterization and Analysis of monetary scams in Video Sharing Domains
Dr. Kusum Kumari BhartiDescriptiion:
Monetary scams are quite prevalent in YouTube which promote easy money earning tricks, sometimes with a promise of free gifts known as 'giveaways', which are often fake and misleading. In spite of the efforts of YouTube to take down misleading content, these videos continue to be present and cause unsuspecting viewers to share their personally identifiable information, as well as download malicious apps. These activities cause loss of time, money and information. Thus, automatic detection of such videos is a necessity so that they can be detected and reported. Machine learning solutions along with word vectorization techniques based on comment ratio features have been used to identify and flag such videos.
