All Aspire products have an Authenticity Scratch Off code on the outside of the packaging. When you check the scratch off authentication it should read as in the photo below (the X's being the numbers you input) If it says that the code has already been checked more than one time, then you have purchased a fake. I have seen where a person checks the code and the code has been checked over 500 times. Meaning that the fake maker is using the same one number on all it's fake goods. Check the code here: http://www.aspirecig.com/
at the bottom of the first page you will see a box that says "Security Code". Enter the scratch off code and press "Go". you should see the screen pictured below. If it says anything other than "Congratulations" as pictured below, you have bought a fake Aspire product.
