New scam as outlined by “Sorry, Not My Table”

Well, I thought I had heard it all. But scalping reservations? On Craigslist? Really??!!??

Well, read this little post at Sorry, Not My Table”:

And don’t stop at the new scam. The bottom of the post outlines some of the really bogus things that people shouldn’t do when it comes to Valentine’s Day (especially, but also applies to any other big holiday that gets booked up early).

The advent of OpenTable, a popular online reservation system, has created a way for enterprising people in their pajamas to try to exploit the interwebs for their own nefarious purposes. I hope this doesn’t start requiring extremely popular restaurants to start taking credit card deposits at the time of reservations. I can’t see it happening, but you never know.
