Debt detection is important for improving payment accuracy in social security. Since debt detection from customer transactional data can be generally modelled as a fraud detection problem, a straightforward solution is to extract features from transaction sequences and build a sequence classifier for debts. The existing sequence classification methods based on sequential patterns consider only positive patterns. However, according to our experience in a large social security application, negative patterns are very useful in accurate debt detection. In this paper, we present a successful case study of debt detection in a large social security application. The central technique is building sequence classification using both positive and negative sequential patterns.
