Default Buying from overseas

Looking at buying some stuff from a manufacturer in China, it'* not really something I've done before, how do I go about it? I don't wanna get screwed, and it'* kinda hard to drive over there and check it out. Is there anyway to hold money in escrow until the product shows up?

Just watched Import Tuners on Spike. The guy ordered a turbo from the Orient and when it came the turbo impeller was trash.

On the other hand, my daughter ordered a grad dress from China. It cost about $20 and looked like it cost $500.

It'* some carbon fiber tubing, 6" in diameter, 36" long. It'* not a company I've ever heard of, it'* a factory. Normally there'* a minimum order, but I'm getting a sample order to see if it'll work for what I want. Basically it'* direct from the manufacturer, and I want to make sure the manufacturer isn't some schmuck from Niegeria just taking my money.
