  • Patent number: 11190473
    Abstract: A content score value is assigned to a text message for content categories. Context data values relating to the text message and to context categories are collected. A context score value for each context category is determined by comparing the context data values with context data threshold values. A content score value for each content category is determined by comparing the content data values with content data threshold values. A difference factor value is calculated as a square root of a summation over differences between the context score values and the content score values. If the difference factor value is determined to exceed a specified difference factor threshold value, then a confirmation is requested and received. The text message is sent by electronic mail to a receiving address.

    Abstract: During operation of a system, a financial transaction of an individual is associated with one or more predefined categories based on scores that indicate the likelihood of association. For example, a given predefined category may include a merchant name (such as the name of a potential counterparty in the financial transaction) and/or an attribute associated with one or more merchants. The score for a given predefined category may be determined based on a number of occurrences of the given predefined category in financial-transaction histories of a subset of a group of individuals who have common spending patterns in their financial-transaction histories. Moreover, the spending pattern may be based on values of financial transactions in the financial-transaction histories.
