In this contribution, we start from a set of effective features used for classifying opinion spam and we re-engineered them, by considering the Cumulative Relative Frequency Distribution of each feature. By an experimental evaluation carried out on real data from Yelp.com, we show that the use of the distributional features is able to improve the performances of classifiers.
