Abstract [en]

The lack of legitimate datasets on mobile money transactions toperform research on in the domain of fraud detection is a big prob-lem today in the scientic community. Part of the problem is theintrinsic private nature of mobile transactions, not much infor-mation can be exploited. This will leave the researchers with theburden of rst harnessing the dataset before performing the actualresearch on it. The dataset corresponds to the set of data in whichthe research is to be performed on. This thesis discusses a solutionto such a problem, namely the Paysim simulator. Paysim is a -nancial simulator that simulates mobile money transactions basedon an original dataset. We present a solution to ultimately yieldthe possibility to simulate mobile money transactions in such a waythat they become similar to the original dataset. The similarity orthe congruity will be measured by calculating the error-rate betweenthe synthetic data set and the original data set. With technologyframeworks such as "Agent Based" simulation techniques, and theapplication of mathematical statistics, it can be demonstrated thatthe synthetic data is as prudent as the original data set. The aimof this thesis is to demonstrate with statistical models that PaySimcan be used as a tool for the intents of nancial simulations.
