    Neve, J & Palomares, I, 2019, ‘Arikui - A Dubious User Detection System for Online Dating in Japan’. in: 2018 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics (SMC 2018). Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), pp. 2299-2304


    Online dating constitutes one out of myriad popular services that can be accessed via the Internet nowadays. This paper introduces a novel detection system for identifying dubious users, i.e. users who utilize a Japanese online dating service for purposes besides dating. Examples of such purposes include sales and multi-level marketing, amongst others. More specifically, the proposed detection is characterized by simultaneously analyzing: (i) user profile data; (ii) user actions over their first few hours; and (iii) data retrieved from Facebook in order to find the likelihood that the user is a spammer. The resulting system successfully detects a number of spammers every day, thereby becoming a valuable tool for the customer service team in Eureka Inc, where it has been deployed.
