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.
