We're currently in the midst  of National Consumer Protection Week, described as "a coordinated campaign that encourages consumers nationwide to take full advantage of their consumer rights and make better-informed decisions."

To mark the occasion, the consumer protection section of the Colorado Attorney General's Office has released its annual list of the top ten consumer complaints fielded by the office.

The total came to 9,568 complaints and inquiries — about a 10 percent increase over 2013.

And what companies, services and the like got Coloradans the most frustrated last year? Here's the AG office's photo-illustrated top ten, featuring the number of complaints in each category. Count it down below.
