Large, multinational corporations typically have to process hundreds and
thousands of vendor invoices every day coming from hundreds or
thousands of vendors in different currencies from many countries. This
has forced the adoption of simple and fast rules of thumb to accept and
pay invoices below a chosen value cutoff without further scrutiny. This
has invited fraud, which is hard to detect and react to, as the
transaction data sets are very large. Fuzzy C-means has turned out to be
effective to identify and sort out transactions, which are similar to
typical fraud cases.
