This project automates the Credit Card Fraud
Detective involved during Credit Card Fraud detection processing at the Ahmadu
Bello University, Zaria, Kongo Campus. Credit Card Fraud Detective include Credit
card detection and fraud operation . A database was implemented using MySQL for
proper record management and PHP was used as scripting language for the system
development. The student creates an account with the APPS system where he/she
can save any amount of money anytime at the designated banks of APPS so that
during registration, he/she simply accesses his/her account and pays for
his/her credit card detection and accommodation. This project shows that it is
easier for students to complete their registration automatically rather than
going through some tedious manual processes during registration.
Developments in Information and Communication
Technologies (ICTs) have made impact in all sectors of the society, including education. In higher education, application of ICTs in
form of e-learning is changing the mode of learning and teaching processes . School
management is now done online, records are being kept in databases that are
accessible through the web. Also Registration, Credit Card Fraud detection of schoolfees,
generating timetables and much more are done using the web. The world of IT has gone far and wide that now makes us see the importance of using
automated system rather than manual system.
Referring to the problem of credit card
detection and fraud operation as the
Automatic Credit Card Fraud detection Portal System (APPS) problem. Given the
large number of students that are typically involved in such problem, there is
a growing interest in automating the process of Credit Card Fraud detection
using centralized matching schemes that incorporate efficient algorithms for APPS.
Examples of similar automated systems are in use in several universities.
In recent years, the advancement of
technology has thus brought us into a new era of Web based systems. These
systems are also known as enquiry systems and have the ability to input data,
with a guaranteed response time and an assurance that the information is
accurate and timely, then one is said to have a “Real Time System” . A real
time system is also a Web based system and comprises mainly of four (4) main
A data-gathering component that collects data from the external
An analysis component that transforms the received information as
required by the application.
A control component that responds to the external environment.
A monitoring component that co-ordinates all other form of these
components so that real-time response can be achieved.
Due to these advancements, organization need
no longer be centralized when information services can reach the home and
offices for processing from a number of geographical locations. However, Web
based systems have helped tremendously in every field of human existence today.
Hence this project work provides and creates an Automatic Credit Card Fraud
detection Portal System (APPS) to the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kongo
Campus through the development of a Web based system that will in turn improve
the efficiency and effectiveness of the university.
1.2 Statement of the Problem
In most Nigerian Institutions of higher
learning especially the Universities and Polytechnics, students enrolment to
these higher institutions is continuously on the increase, and each year every
student is expected to register for a session and therefore the student has to
make Credit Card Fraud detection for the session. This increase in student’s
population over the years makes the period of registration stressful and Credit
Card Fraud detection of credit card detection and hostel accommodation a very
tedious exercise. The existing system of Credit Card Fraud detection of credit
card detection and fraud operation at
the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kongo Campus involves a student going
online to generate a transaction ID which is then taken to the bank for Credit
Card Fraud detection. If the student needs to get fraud operation , he/she has
to go back online, book a room, generate another transaction ID and then take
it back to the bank. This process is causing a lot of problems because many
students will have to line up in unending queues in banks where so many
unforeseen events might happen. A student might lose his/her money; get tired
due to stress and so many other events. Most students during registration are
always at home and will have to come back to school for registration because
most banks outside Zaria does not provide this service.
