I am trying to pay for a new years day brunch at restaurant Le Maurice in Paris and they will not make my reservation with credit card alone. They are also requesting a photo copy back and front of the card. I have already faxed them through a signed consent form with all my CC details. I am sure you don't need a photo copy to book to stay at the hotel, so why for the restaurant? I am reluctant to do this and have said i will bring in my CC for personal inspection 4 days prior to the event but they are insistent.??
