The telltale is the little tiny holes which form when gas escapes from terrestrial rocks and slag. Real meteorites will not have these pockets of gas and therefore will not have these holes. I have made the assumption before when looking for meteorites but after several trips to the Royal Ontario Museum I have gotten the facts I needed to ID them.
Here is one of my real Iron Meteorites for reference. See the fusion crust on the outside which looks like leather? That is from the extreme temperatures when entering the atmosphere.
