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?

If it came from a pro team mechanic.................
Or someone who claims to be a pro team mechanic.

Online? Where? eBay, Craiglist, FB Marketplace or elsewhere? Does he have ratings/reviews as a seller?

Sounds too good to be true.
