Well since you didn't post a link or pictures, I don't know. Compare it for yourself:

It's more than just the box being fake. The engraving in the first picture is another obvious clue.

That's the supposed serial number. It's been reported as a fake.

Good Optics have a good resale value. Therefore buying a new one from a authorized dealer vs buying a lightly used one is +/- 5-10% of its retail value. A lot of times, you can buy a new one with a store special for the same price as a gently used one.
