Michigan is getting ripped off.

Big time.

In a new report issued by the Federal Trade Commission, Michigan is number three on the list of states with consumer fraud complaints in 2016. According to gizmodo.com, Florida is number one with the most fraud complaints per 100,000 people. Georgia is number two. The most common way of contacting victims, in 2016, was by phone.

HOWEVER - if you read the full FTC report, (page 18) you'll see that the No.1 state in America for identity theft is Michigan and the No. 1 city in America for identity theft was Ann Arbor, Michigan. At No.10 is...Lansing.

Yikes. Here's the story.
