False applies to concepts, ideas, or statements lacking in truth or accuracy. In contrast, fake is commonly used for tangible items that are imitations or replicas, intended to be passed off as the original.

A statement can be false without any intent to deceive, simply being erroneous. Conversely, something fake usually involves an element of deceit or creation with the intention of misleading others into believing it's real.
