Prescription fraud is a type of drug crime that is related to controlled substances used as medicines, including such prescription drugs as Vicodin, Xanax, OxyContin, Percocet, Valium, and much more. Although drug crimes are most often considered in relation to illegal narcotics,
prescription drug crimes have become prevalent throughout the U.S. Prescription fraud is one such drug crime that involves using fraudulent means to unlawfully obtain prescription drugs, either for personal use or for
distribution or sale.
Prescription fraud may be carried out in several different ways:
- Stealing blank prescription slips
- Altering a valid prescription
- Forging or counterfeiting prescription slips
- Seeing multiple doctors for the same prescription (doctor shopping)
In short, prescription fraud is using any means of misrepresentation or deceit to unlawfully obtain a prescription drug or drugs. Prescription fraud may even be carried out via the internet by way of hacking or fraud in an online pharmacy.
