In recent years, fraud is becoming more rampant internationally with the development of modern technology and global communication. Due to the rapid growth in the volume of call logs, the task of fraudulent phone call detection is confronted with Big Data issues in real-world implementations. While our previous work, FrauDetector, has addressed this problem and achieved some promising results, it can be further enhanced as it focuses on the fraud detection accuracy while the efficiency and scalability are not on the top priority. Meanwhile, other known approaches suffer from long training time and/or cannot accurately detect fraudulent phone calls in real time. In this paper, we propose a highly-efficient parallelized graph-mining-based fraudulent phone call detection framework, namely PFrauDetector, which is able to automatically label fraudulent phone numbers with a "fraud" tag, a crucial prerequisite for distinguishing fraudulent phone call numbers from the normal ones. PFrauDetector generates smaller, more manageable sub-networks from the original graph and performs a parallelized weighted HITS algorithm for significant speed acceleration in the graph learning module. It adopts a novel aggregation approach to generate the trust (or experience) value for each phone number (or user) based on their respective local values. We conduct a comprehensive experimental study based on a real dataset collected through an anti-fraud mobile application, Whoscall. The results demonstrate a significantly improved efficiency of our approach compared to FrauDetector and superior performance against other major classifier-based methods.
