To avoid fraudulent post for job in the internet, an automated tool using machine learning based classification techniques is proposed in the paper. Different classifiers are used for checking fraudulent post in the web and the results of those classifiers are compared for identifying the best employment scam detection model. It helps in detecting fake job posts from an enormous number of posts. Two major types of classifiers, such as single classifier and ensemble classifiers are considered for fraudulent job posts detection. However, experimental results indicate that ensemble classifiers are the best classification to detect scams over the single classifiers.
