mask.of.sanity writes "Life could become more difficult for fraudsters on Skype thanks to new research by Microsoft boffins that promises to cut down on fake accounts across the platform.

The results show the framework boosted fraud detection rates for particular account types by 68 per cent with a 5 per cent false positive rate."
