Becky Ellis and Anna Haywood at the University of Essex are doing some excellent qualitative work on ebay as a consumption/performance of knowledges phenomenon, though not on trust specifically.  They are running this conference http://www.essex.ac.uk/chimera/culturesofebay/Programme.html  The names in the programme should give some guidance.

I know that there are large-scale, economic analysis of e-bay usage, as it's 
a great example of an information-based market economy.
But someone asked me if there were any user studies of e-bay, specifically 
about issues of trust, rating credibility, etc.
I said, if anyone knows about this stuff, it would be AoIR folks.
See you at AoIR in Chicago!
