The Top 20 Complaint Categories

Posted October 5th, 2007 by Joe Kaiser

Dear Rob,

Reviewing your press releases for 2007, I noticed the February 13th press release about your office’s “complaint list.”

It concluded with a chart, reproduced here, of the “Top 20 Complaint Categories for 2006.”

Notice anything missing?


Emerging Marketplace Issues

Rob, where are the “Foreclosure Rescue Scam” complaints?

From the sound of things coming out of your office, foreclosure rescue scams seem to be a big item. Huey cited it as such, apparently, in the News Tribune article . . .

We’ve sort of shifted our focus to foreclosure rescue fraud, because that’s where con artists can make a living.— AAG David Huey

Yet it doesn’t even make your top 20 list?

Why am I not surprised?


Jumping on board

Yes, foreclosure rescue scam stories are all the rage today, and with the real estate market tanking in many parts of the country and foreclosures on the rise, they will continue to be.

Attorneys General nationwide will do all they can to prevent homeowners from becoming foreclosure rescue scam victims (a good thing).

And at least one AG will file a bogus consumer protection lawsuit and issue a misleading, error-filled, malicious press release (a not so good thing) in a pathetic attempt to convey to the citizens of the state of Washington that his office is hard at work on their behalf.


18,354

More to the point . . .

Washington consumers filed 18,354 complaints with the Attorney General’s Office in 2006. — February 13, 2007 Press Release

18,354 consumer complaints your office received in 2006 means you must be very busy over there in the Consumer Protection Divsion.

Rob. I’m curious, out of those nearly 20 thousand complaints, exactly how many were against me?

” . . . ”

I’m sorry?

In the arena,

Joe Kaiser

    Joe, that is the published hit list. Didn’t you know you were on “double secret” probation and were sole resident of a double secret list as well? Sheesh! Where is a good food fight when you need one! How sophmoric. (Ugh, this would be an Animal House reference.)

    Their vindictivness is unreal.
