Risks of buying a phone on Ebay

One of the risks of buying a phone on Ebay I was thinking is:

What if the phone is on contract and you don't know
And the seller stops paying their contract and the phone gets blocked

Is that a possibility?

But... Paypal & eBay buyer protection will get you a full refund if this does happen. It may take a while to process but it does work. This has happened to a couple of friends and they both, independently verified the process.

Still sucks, though. 2nd hand I only buy person to person.
