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).

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.
