Online recruitment fraud (ORF) is a new challenge in the cyber security area. In ORF, scammers give job seekers lucrative job offers and in-return steal their money and personal information. In India, scammers have stolen millions of moneys from innocent job seekers. Hence, it is important to find solution to this problem. In this paper, we propose, ORFDetector, an ensemble learning based model for ORF detection. We test the proposed model on publicly available dataset of 17,860 annotated jobs. The proposed model is found to be effective and give average f1-score and accuracy of 94% and 95.4, respectively. Additionally, it increases the specificity by 8% as compared to the baseline classifiers.
