Telemarketers who ignore the state’s no-call list continue to be the biggest annoyance for Wisconsin residents.

That’s according to the annual list of complaints put out by the state Department of Ag, Trade, and Consumer Protection. Nearly two-thousand Wisconsinites filed complaints with the agency last year about being harassed by telemarketers.

Landlord and tenant issues took the number two spot, with telecommunications and issues with charges found on phone bills at number three.

Rounding out the top ten was problems with satellite dish service, home improvements, car sales and repairs, credit cards, travel, and internet providers.

For the first time since the list began, complaints about identity theft almost cracked the top ten, coming in as the number 11 top complaint handled by DATCP.
