Counterfeit Tamron Lenses?

I've been shopping for an inexpensive macro lens for my Canon DSLR.  I have seen a used Tamron 90mm macro (Model 272EE) for a good price, but the lens shown in the photos do not look like the "same" lens being sold new in places like B&H or Adorama.  For example, there is no red dot to show where the lens aligns with the bayonet and there does not appear to be a serial number in the same place.  I know that many brands have counterfeit problems, but have never heard of any counterfeit Tamron lenses. Have any of you?
