  abstract =     "The volume of online transactions has raised a lot in
                 last years, mainly due to the popularity of E-commerce,
                 such as Web retailers. We also observe a significant
                 increase in the number of fraud cases, resulting in
                 billions of dollars losses each year worldwide.
                 Therefore it is important and necessary to developed
                 and apply techniques that can assist in fraud
                 detection, which motivates our research. This work
                 proposes the use of Genetic Programming (GP), an
                 Evolutionary Computation approach, to model and detect
                 fraud (charge back) in electronic transactions, more
                 specifically in credit card operations. In order to
                 evaluate the technique, we perform a case study using
                 an actual dataset of the most popular Brazilian
                 electronic payment service, called UOL PagSeguro. Our
                 results show good performance in fraud detection,
                 presenting gains up to 17.72percent percent compared to
                 the baseline, which is the actual scenario of the
