Paternity Fraud refers to a paternal discrepancy or a non-paternity event[wp], in which a mother names a man to be the biological father of a child, particularly for self-interest, when she knows or suspects that he is not the biological father. Paternity fraud is a form of misattributed paternity[wp]. The term entered into common use in the late 1990s. It has been given significant coverage by U.S. activists and authors Tom Leykis[wp], Glenn Sacks[wp] and Wendy McElroy[wp].
