This study compared 119 personal injury claimants' scores on MMPI-2 and MCMI-II malingering scales. Data from 55 pseudo-PTSD patients and 64 controls confirm the utility of the scales examined. The following cut-offs were most effective for identifying spurious PTSD: F greater than 62, F-K = greater than -4, Es = greater than 30, FBS = greater than 24 (men), FBS = greater than 26 (women), total obvious minus subtle = greater than 90, DIS = greater than 60, and DEB = greater than 60.
