Because the amount fraudulently claimed is so large and could result in serious issues, various organisations are working with the government to identify and curtail these actions. Such frauds occurred in every area of insurance claim with high severity, for example, insurance claim towards the auto sector is fraud that is frequently claimed and prominent kind, which may be done by false accident claim. Therefore, our goal is to create a project that analyses set of insurance claim data to find fraud and inflated claims. The study uses machine intelligence algorithms to create a claim assessment and labelling model.
Additionally, a matrix of confusion comparison of complete machine intelligence mathods for categorization should be done in terms of soft accuracy, precision, recall, etc. Machine learning model is constructed for fraudulent transaction validation using PySpark Python Library.
According to estimates, fraud costs the insurance industry billions of dollars yearly and is on the rise across all industries. Insurance fraud is unlawful behaviour that is done with the intent to make money. Currently, this will be the most critical problem that many insurance firms throughout the world are dealing with.
