Prescription fraud is defined as the acquisition of prescription drugs for personal use or profit. Often, chronic pain sufferers addicted to opiates or pain meds, and hospital workers and nurses who want to obtain or sell drugs are common defendants in these cases.
Other types of prescription fraud include forging prescriptions on a stolen physician’s pad; use of computers to create fake prescriptions; impersonating medical staff to call in prescriptions and using your own number as call-back confirmation; and altering the drug quantity on a physician’s prescription.
