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.
