No. 1 consumer complaint: Collection agencies

OLYMPIA— When it comes to consumer complaints, collection agencies are at the top of the list for people who called the state attorney general’s office last year.

That’s up from No. 3 in 2008, the AG’s office reports. Collection agencies beat out telecommunications problems, last year’s numero uno, and retail sales complaints, which dropped from 2 to 3.

Making the biggest jump in the top 10 were Cable Networks and Program Distribution, up to 4 from 8.
