Click fraud (CF) has become a serious problem in the online advertising, making the anti-CF issue quite important. In this paper, we analyze the effects of the price determination model on the CF situations in online advertising. Our theoretical results show that the flat-rate model can induce more click frauds than the real-time-bidding model. Our finding is validated with a real advertising dataset.
