Default Serial number - Is it a Fat Chance?

Hello everyone. I am new to this forum. I bought a bike a few months ago that has fake Pinarello decals (shame). I knew it was not a Pinarello, but I liked the frame and it was not expensive so I bought it anyway. Looking on the Internet for similar frames it looks to me it may be a Fat Chance Yo Eddy, but I am not sure. That's why I am reaching out to experts. The following is the serial number:
YL93080495

Can anyone confirm? I would definitely love this one be a Yo Eddy.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Serial doesn't look like a Fat. There is nothing like a real one Post a pic if you can. It's not unknown for serial numbers to be altered or misread under a thick layer of paint.

It is not a Somerville serial number, however it could be a Saratoga serial number. I have no knowledge of their numbering scheme.
Good luck

Saratoga serial number would be

Model / Size / Number

So a 97 Yo would look like YO ML 1050
Bucksaver BS SM 9999

Etc.
