I've been pretty fortunate when buying things off of eBay. I have yet to get burned. I do avoid ads, where I find gross discrepancies and the seller doesn't know what he's talking about.
I also ask specific questions and save those e-mails. If the frame or fork arrives and it's contrary to what I specifically asked about then I've got a legitimate claim.
I also ask for detailed close ups if they say there is a scratch or a gouge. I ask for as much info as possible.
