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?

UPdate: Got a reply from Colnago:

"It is an original V2r, size 48s, built in 2019"

Too bad it is not my size :(
Can you pm where this frame is located. I would love to buy it. Thanks
It is in Medellín, Colombia.
No idea if it would be worth the try to send overseas 🤔
Thanks. Yeah overseas is a no go for me. It’s to bad since the price is great and stack/reach is identical to what I ride
