If you’ve ever wondered what the number and distribution of fraud complaints filed with the FTC in a given year is (latest results we have are for 2011) — here it is. The only one that surprises us is #27; there were only 3,474 Charitable Solicitations complaints. Why is that a surprise? Because it feels like at least that many firemen (?) or police officers (?) called us!
