Fraud is one of the major ethical issues in the credit card industry. The main aims are, firstly, to identify the different
types of credit card fraud, and, secondly, to review alternative techniques that have been used in fraud detection. The
sub-aim is to present, compare and analyze recently published findings in credit card fraud detection. This article
defines common terms in credit card fraud and highlights key statistics and figures in this field. Depending on the type
of fraud faced by banks or credit card companies, various measures can be adopted and implemented. The proposals
made in this paper are likely to have beneficial attributes in terms of cost savings and time efficiency. The significance
of the application of the techniques reviewed here is in the minimization of credit card fraud. Yet there are still ethical
issues when genuine credit card customers are misclassified as fraudulent.
