Look out for unnecessary fees
Some time ago, your newspaper exposed a scam where some restaurants in Destin were charging a "Destin Tax' to their bill. The city said there was no such tax.
After being exposed, most restaurants dropped the tax. However, after having dinner (recently) in Destin, I discovered a 3% "Convenience Fee" had been added to my bill.
You don't find this out until after you get the bill.
Apparently they feel they can't add a increase to their already high prices so they add a fee. They call it a convenience fee to process your credit card. Most credit card transactions fees are only 1.5%.
I hope you will disclose this type of unethical business practice to the public so they can look out for these type excessive charges.
