From Peter Schiff's Gold Scams blog:
On eBay beware of a silver bullion item with a vague description and a good price. That seller is hoping you skip the fine print and miss the fact that it is not the .999 you are looking for.
There are listings of supposed .999 silver accompanied by the words “100 Mills”. This isn’t pure silver. It is a copper bar or round that is plated in silver.The seller may tag the item as “1 Troy Oz. 100 Mills .999 Silver”.
Be careful out there.
