"My question is, is this out-an-out Credit Card Fraud? They are making grumblings like they aren't going to replace those funds on my card. Only time will tell. I just want to be able to tell them that what they did was illegal if it is, so that I can get the money back. By the way, it is more the principle than it is the money. $7.13 won't break my budget."

My guess is they probably posted the fact that they do that on large parties somewhere in the menu in small print. So they may have given you "fair warning". But, nothing says that you can't formally dispute the charge (as you have the right to do) with AMEX, and let them squirm for awhile. There is a formal procedure and they'll have to answer to AMEX, and it will take up some of their time. Hope this helps,
