Wait staff at several Washington-area high-end restaurants stole credit card numbers from customers and ran up a $750,000 tab at stores like Gucci and Barney’s of New York, federal authorities said in court documents.

The customers victimized at the District’s M&S Grill, 701 Restaurant, Clyde’s of Gallery Place and Bowie’s Carrabba’s Italian Restaurant, as well as National Harbor’s main hotel and Gaylord National Hotel, are not alone.

In New Orleans, a waitress at Bubba Gump Shrimp Seafood Co. was charged last week with selling up to 50 customers’ credit card information, The Times-Picayune reported.
