© 2018 IEEE. This paper proposes a comparative performance of ten different machine learning algorithms, done on a credit card fraud detection application. The machine learning methods have been classified into two groups namely classification algorithms and ensemble learning group. Each group is comprised of five different algorithms. Besides, the 'Time' feature is introduced in the data set and performances of the algorithms are studied with and without the 'Time' feature. Two algorithms of the ensemble learning group have been found to perform better when the used dataset does not include the 'Time' feature. However, for the classification algorithms group, three classifiers are found to show better predictive accuracies when all attributes are included in the used dataset. The rest of the machine learning models have approximate similar scores between these datasets.
