Hi Mister Micawber,

Thanks for your help.

If there are days involved, like: You were faking illness for 3 days or You had been faking illness for 3 days.

Thanks

You were faking illness for 3 days.

I suggest you study something more useful. It is an uncommon verb form that is used formally and only when the order of occurrence of two past events is otherwise unclear.

Note the necessity for past perfect below:

I finished eating when Barack arrived.
I had finished eating when Barack arrived.
