True, but sometime being a little cagey with your questions can get
you what you need:

"Is the item in the auction photos the actual item you have for sale
in the auction?"
"Could you please provide a photograph of the back of the system in
high resolution so I can verify the description you've given in the
auction listing?"

Obviously, these might not always get everything you need, but at
least as starters, those questions don't tip your hand too much.
