Really interesting that this shows up during the predicament I am facing. I had the same problem with item misrepresentating.

I have a idea that I'm curious to hear your opinions about:

Maybe the inclusion of a middleman will help. Money gets sent via paypal friends and family to a well known person on the forums like a moderator. Moderator/middleman holds the money and releases it only when item has made it to recipient and found to be accurate for the buyer. Middle man gets paid a fee for handling transaction.

Thought of this idea just now.
