Please STOP the game of hidden fees across all types of vendors. When the cost of a service or item is different from the price it is false advertising at its worst. In addition, since fees are usually added in with taxes under the heading of "fees and taxes" a large proportion of the population believe the fees are "government fees". Please give the buyer a 'fair deal" but forcing sellers to advertise the true cost and not some made-up number (call price) with no true relationship to the true cost.
