Being that this is one of the most sold counterfeit cards on eBay it's almost a given that an ungraded card in Mint or Better condition will most likely be a fake.
So one of the first things that you as a buyer can do is check out the buying habits of the seller. Granted many sellers are smart in that they have two id's. One for buying and the other for selling but the following is a great example if the buyer had only checked into the sellers history before bidding.

Seller wins the following auction on Jan-17-05 Jordan Reprint

Than on Feb-10-05 starts an auction for a Jordan RC. Real Jordan?

Auction closes on Feb-13-05 to the tune of $330.00
Buyer than shows up on the CU board with the following thread.
(The Following Comments Are Of The Individual Posters And ARE NOT Necessarily The Views OR Opinions Of This Board)Got an obvious fake off ebay, what can I do/should I do?

To do a search of what a person has been buying is easy.
Click on advanced search. Then click on items by bidder. Enter bidder's name in the box and choose your options. I recommend that you include completed auctions and even if not the high bidder so that you can see every item that has been bid on. Unfortunately this only shows items of the past 30 days so you might have to go and check the sellers feedback, look for items they have bought and click away.

Also another overlooked thing by many buyers is that they don't check feedback left until after a problem arises. To save you potential problems use the following Negative/Neutral Feedback tool before you commit to hitting that bid or buy it now button.
