Does one need to be a member of Ebay in order to get these cheap blade prices?

I don't trust Fusion blades on ebay. I bought some used them twice on my face and the lubrastrip has come off. I think these blades are fake must have been stung because it feels like I'm dragging a blunt instrument.
i bought 48 mach3 blades off ebay about a month ago for $30. they arrived and the packaging was perfect. however, one swipe at my head with the blade and i realized it was a cheap knockoff. the blade was, like shakf said, like dragging a shovel over my head. the lubrastrip (?) was nothing more than paint and just disappeared after four passes under the hot water. upon further inspection, i noticed there was no 'gillette' brand stamp on the cartridge (you can see it on your real ones, on the back of it where it attaches to the handle), and the serial number was different from the real ones i had. i e-mailed the guy (not so nicely) telling him these were fakes and they cut my head all up, and demanded my money back. he complied instantly and apologized, but i could tell he knew they were fake and was just going to re-sell them. what gets me is his seller rating is immaculate, near 100%, all his feedback is like 'A+++ #1 seller!!' and all that jazz. what gives? either these people are all submitting feedback before using the blades, or they're just not noticing that they're of horrible quality, which i can't believe. i mean, we've all used cheap razors, on our heads and our faces, and we KNOW when it's a cheap razor, right? i don't understand. anyway, a little internet research led me to a chinese wholesaler who sells the blades for around 25 cents per blade, but you have to buy in bulk, like 400 packs minimum. my guess is these are lesser-quality gillette-sanctioned blades being sold in second-world countries where the costs don't justify the returns the american market dictates, but the brand still has immense selling power. i realize every time i post here i make it a froggin novel, but i don't want anybody to get screwed over. i was lucky to get my money back. i don't know how there's a way to tell online if the blades are real or not. if i ever buy online again, i'm going to ask the seller if the blades are knockoffs, and then if the gillette stamp is on the razors. best of luck to you all.
