Malingering is the least common type of medical fraud. It is defined as premeditated fraud with a low, medium, or high degree of prior preparation. This preparation often takes the form of discussions with friends or family members, reviews of one’s own previous medical records or consultations of the medical literature in the local public library. The objective of the preparation is to find and memorize all of the medical information about the alleged condition.
