All in all, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said they received more than 44,000 complaints in the last year.

Coming in at number one as the top complaint was violating the state’s Do Not Call list; 18,067 complaints. It is interesting to note that this year there was a 4 percent decrease in Do Not Call complaints. The decrease in complaints may be contributed to the agency’s increased enforcement efforts over the past two years, which have resulted in the collection of more than $430,000 in administrative fines.
