Looks fake to me but a picture of the data side of the disc would help.  Also, can you tell us where/how you bought it?

Unfortunately, fake Erasure promos are a huge problem due to Russian bootleggers (and a guy named Dima in particular).  Find the "Fake Promos" thread on the forums here to read more about it.

Sadly promos are now a minefield for collectors,I
Loved collecting them for rare mixes etc but nowadays with all these fakes going around it’s more likely people will stop risking their well earned cash.

Well, we're slowly headed to the point in the not so distant future where even non-CD-Rs and vinyl will eventually be able to be duplicated without obvious sign. Of course, duplicating Vince and Andy might be possible at that point as well. We may very well live long enough to reminisce fondly of the days where only CD-Rs were fake.

Fake.

I have NEVER seen any Erasure/Mute CDr discs with a black ring.

I'm gonna say that the black ring was purposely printed up to obscure the matrix numbers
as to not trace the manufacturing date of the disc. Which, I wouldn't be too surprised to
find that they were manufactured after 2003.

The OP should either include the matrix in a picture or be accused of shilling for a potential
sale.

Point well taken. I advise the Mod(s)/Admin(s) check the IP of the user account and see if it matches up to Russian ranges, or known proxies. This could very well just be Dima again since the only two posts from the OP are in this thread, and mastery of the English language and grammar isn't 100%.

I would say it's fake for same reasons the others did mention...also look at how they written (Come Up An See Me) ....with little letters and no space between 'smile' and 'come'

There is no ':' after Cat No !!

Never seen 'Club Promo Play Only' written like that before...well I'm Danish but still I don't think it's correct english?!

Mostly you'll see track numbers written like 01 on these promos, and not like 1.

....again it's very difficult to spot fake CD-R promos since obviously they have been made for years....and some of the bootlegs could have been around for so long time that many thinks they are official promos?!

Here is a copy of my promo bought many years ago, and lately I must say I'm not 100% sure if this one is real (though I think so)....judge yourself...photos taken of my item 10 min. ago
