You can find out yourself if you're willing to put in a bit of work. Real data follows a known distribution, called Benford's Law
. If these numbers are fake, they won't have the correct distribution. It's pretty simple. I'm pretty busy today and tomorrow (no food in the house, road race tomorrow morning, daughter's college application, etc.) but if I have time, I'll give it a shot.
