It is National Consumer Protection Week and that means state officials are working to keep you from becoming the victim of a scam or a bad business practice. News10NBC has new numbers from the attorney general's office of the top complaints in the Rochester area. 

The number one complaint is used car sales, followed by home improvement contractors, services, credit(debt collection) and retail sales.

The complaints are the results of people who say they were either victimized or were having trouble resolving a consumer-related conflict.

Other common issues in the area had to do with things like home improvement and repair contractors and debt collection. If you've had an issue, you can contact the state attorney general's office.
