What should I look for when considering the purchase of a used carbon frame?

How should I objectively inspect a used carbon frame to ensure the frame has not been structurally damaged? Are there obvious places I should examine? If so, then where and how should I best evaluate the frame?

This isn't really a framebuilding question, seems like there are a lot of questions recently that come under the "what I would ask a framebuilder if I could" catagory. Also as a guy who pumps out lots of frames for his own use, etc... I'm really no expert on what old frames are like. I have a few but I care for them so they look like new.
