Abstract : Email is a platform where we communicate, exchange ideas between each other. In today's world email plays a key role irrespective of the field. In such a scenario, phishing mails are one of the major threats in today's world. These e-mails”seems” like legitimate but leads the users to malicious sites. As a result the user or organization or institution end up as the prey of the online predators. In order to tackle such problems, several statistical methods have been applied. In this paper we make use of distributional representation namely TF-IDF for numeric representation of phishing mails. Also a comparative study of classical machine learning techniques like Random Forest, AdaBoost, Naive Bayes, Decision Tree, SVM. Copyright © by the paper's authors.
