Unless you plan on following the server after the hand-off, you really have no sure way of making certain your credit information is secured. New technology has been developed to allow customers to swipe their card at the table, so your precious digits never leave your sight. With identity theft and credit fraud becoming commonplace, any step you can take to avoid a scam is a necessary one. And go ahead…order dessert!
