One complaint involved a jewelry store getting consumers drunk to make a $16,400 sale Alarm-system complaints have also seen an uptick, especially regarding scare tactics and solicitations These are just a few of the complaints the nonprofit Consumer Federation of America found in its annual report on the most common consumer complaints of the year, released Monday.

Of the 40 local consumer watchdog agencies the CFA reached out to, 38 agencies responded with a total of 908,000 complaints from last year There were dozens of complaints within numerous categories, mostly to do with misrepresentation, false advertising, "Shoddy work," issues with gift cards or certificates, failure to deliver and billing issues The Federal Trade Commission accepts complaints regarding telemarketing, credit scams, and identity theft, as well as "Do not call" registry violations and issues with health and weight-loss products or debt collections.
