Top Ten Colorado Industries With the Most Consumer Complaints in 2015

Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman has revealed the top ten consumer complaints in the state during 2015.

The list is divided by the industries that generated the most gripes to Coffman's office last year — and there are some significant changes from the top consumer complaints in 2014.

For example, two categories that were on the list in 2014 — real estate services and payday lenders — no longer appear.

Which means two new ones have taken their place.

However, the number one industry maintained its stranglehold. And it leads to the pack by a lot.

Count down the top ten below, featuring statistics from the Colorado Attorney General's Office. They're followed by a chart showing all the results.

Number 10: Contractors (Roofing)

Complaints filed with the Colorado Attorney General's Office: 110

Number 9: Medical Testing Companies

Complaints filed with the Colorado Attorney General's Office: 116

Number 7 (tie): Telephone (Cell Phones and Equipment)

Complaints filed with the Colorado Attorney General's Office: 122

Number 7 (tie): Shopping Services — Internet

Complaints filed with the Colorado Attorney General's Office: 122

Number 6: Fraudulent/Unwanted E-mail
