Top Colorado Consumer Complaints for 2013

Debt collectors top the list. Last year the Colorado Attorney General heard from 1037 people about companies that go too far trying to collect money.

In fact, Attorney General John Suthers joined 31 other attorneys general. They sent a list of new rules they want Uncle Sam to implement to protect you.

One of the requests asks the government to make it illegal to call you at work about a debt you owe.

The top five complaints also include mortgage lenders, cable and satellite television companies, as well as fraudulent emails and phone calls.

Also on the list are internet shopping services, payday lenders, new and used car dealers, cell and phone companies, as well as financial planners.
