    Possibly. I bought a domain with fake pr5 (it was redirecting to an authority site), although it never changed after the last pr update (april?may?). I haven't posted content on it yet and it still says it has pr5

    It's a redirect to a high PR site. Some guys do it to trick people to sell their low quality sites.
