The customer posts their reviews of a product on social media platforms and on e-commerce platforms about a product. These reviews can be read by other customers who are also willing to buy the product. Getting an idea about a product before buying it is good for the customers. But some people or organizations in order to promote their products start posting fake positive reviews. Similarly, to demote their opponent’s business they post fake negative reviews. This can misguide the customer’s purchase decisions. Several researchers previously addressed this issue using machine learning and deep learning models. The transformer model like BERT, RoBERTa, and DeBERTa are used. A novel classifier DeBERTa has been explored in this research. The results show that the DeBERTa model outperforms the BERT and ROBERTA models and has achieved an F1 score of 93%
