How to spot a counterfeit?

I'm building my next bike and I stumbled upon an appealing Colnago V2R frame, UAE team edition. $800.

It seems to be good to be true, so you want to make sure it is not a knock-off.

Any advice? What should I look for?

Are you buying online? Can you inspect it?

Closest I could find was this. Same used rim version. Not team edition. It sold recently for $1,650.
$800 seems too good to be true.
