Is it possible to use fake miner software in order to provide fake results to a pool it joins? Could an evil miner lie about how fast it does not find the shares? Thus make the pool believe it worked on the shares so hard and later when a block found by a real miner, the fake one would get paid as its "computing power" was used.

Ok, probably I not clearly understand this bitcoin thing. I meant that a miner would receive an actual share (existing or whatever means valid share) but quickly answering that no results found... Will the server check that it really calculated that share? If my question is too stupid please point me the right direction where I can read about how this part of bitcoin works.

its hard to understand and explain how it works but the way i think of it is like a jig saw and each piece is a share if 1 share dosnt fit the block dosnt get solved its actually more complicated but this sums it up nicely enough
