Open an "item not as described" case against the sellers if you are absolutely sure that they have stated that the items were solid silver. A lot of these dodgers sneak the word "plated" or cunningly find other ways to be conservative with the truth when describing the items.
Ebay doesn't care too much about what carp gets sold, they are...let's say..."fee-orientated". People are allowed to sell plated stuff, but not if it is sold as solid silver.
