I think I would use it...

I can sympathize with your paranoia. I have bought many things from Ebay (both new and used) and only recently I received some shifters that were junk. I decided I was not going to buy shifters, rear derailleurs, wheel-sets or any wearable item used again. I am about as obsessive compulsive as they come. I lost 2 hours or sleep last night wondering about some things that didn’t need the attention.

Based on the visual inspection you described and your apparent eye for detail, I think you would see any repairs on your fork. I would carefully install the fork, inspect it after each ride while gradually getting more aggressive with it (start smooth and go to mild curbs and braking). Pretty soon you will gain confidence in it and be descending on it without a second thought.
