In my restless pursuit of eBay auctions offering fantasy chips w/o full disclosure, I sent a message to the following dealer. She immediately responded saying she was unaware that the chip was not from a real casino and said she would withdraw it. I thanked her for her honesty but said she might get something for it if she sold it as a fantasy chip. This is her response. It implies that she got "taken" by someone else. But it shows that there are honest people out there who will respect information.

Based on this and a couple of recent experiences on ebay,
I think I am through with casino chips. I will stick to
