Just called 888-355-7209 and had my number removed from their list. Quick and easy. Hope it works. The call yesterday came in at 8:01am.

December 6th, 2013 Jane OH

I called this number and told them I contribute through the Dear Neighbor campaign and would like my phone number removed from the call list and they couldn't have been nicer.

December 5th, 2013 Gloria MI

Thank you to American Heart Assoc for the message below with a number to call to remove your number from their call lists. I called them and politely asked that my number be added to their do not call list. They we very nice and took care of it. The Association does good work. Please do not be rude to people who are trying to do a good thing

December 1st, 2013 Diana KY

They have more than one number and just keep calling!

November 25th, 2013 Maddie KS

About the fifth time they have called from this number. I knew who they were thanks to the posts below. I told the lady I am not making a donation and she said they don't want money from me. I said, right ... you want me to bug the hell out of my friends. She said we simply want you to send out mailers to your neighbors. I said not only would I not do that but I wanted off their list and I no longer donate to charities because of harassment like this.

December 4th, 2012 m. sestan NC

please take me off your calling list

November 29th, 2012 Tired of unkwn TX

If all these idiots would identify themselves on the caller ID, I might consider answering. I will NEVER answer a call that has 'TOLL FREE CALL' or UNKNOWN. Count me out.

November 9th, 2012 American Heart OH

Please know that the calls you are receiving are part of the American Heart Association’s Dear Neighbor campaign. We are reaching out to caring people to volunteer to send letters to their neighbors in February. If you would like to volunteer, please answer our call. Or, to have your name removed, please call 888-355-7209 Thank you!

How can I stop this call? Weekly, or more, calls.

January 9th, 2012 ju KS

This call came in in mid-morning and by the time I had reached the phone (4 rings) they had already hung up. However, when that happens my cordless phone seems to lose tone connection until I unplug and replug the pack. It is only in these calls. I don't know if they hang up about the time the machine on another phone kicks in - it shouldn't until 5 or 6 rings - but these are annoying calls. They hand up before a machine can answer. It is difficult to reach a phone if one is working around the house that quickly. I do get irritated that I am the one paying for the line and these not provided not answer not leaving message telemarketers are using this service I provide for their tool.

Just as some have reported below they are calling for American Heart Association, I too am tired of them calling and not answering when you say Hello. I finally got someone to answer and she aked for my wife by name I asked who is calling, she hung up. I dialed star 69 and received the number and called. The lady there knew nothing except there were making calls for volunteers. Hell of a way to ask for donations/volunteers. When they send their mailings the only thing they will get is a not-friendly note !!!!

December 29th, 2011 feed up KS

Tired of phone calls from unknown callers. If you want me to answer the phone please identify yourself. And I may or may not answer the call. It is my choice.

December 29th, 2011 Resignation IL

I wish sponsors understood the anger and resentment they create by incessant and anonymous phone calls, much less the physical distress for older Americans. Good causes obtain donations through the word of good works, not repetitive phone calls. Successful businesses, charities (and even politicians) do well through marketing techniques that don't involve home privacy invasion. I think these phone sponsors do harm to their image that creates a highly negative opinion of their organization. In the meantime, all we can do is endure their unrelenting assaults and pass on our views opinions about their judgment.

December 14th, 2011 G.S. MD

Most likely American Heart. They, or their hired front company, called yesterday with a different number.

these people have no shame. I get at least two calls a day, plus... every Sunday. Why don't they use this wasted money on the causes of Heart Disease? They and all TOLL FREE CALLERS - should be made to apologize to the American people. Thank goodness I have call block.

I phoned the AHA number - 1-800-AHA-USA1 (242-8721) and spoke to a pleasant lady who kept asking for my name. All I would give out is the number they have been calling everyday and woke me up this morning. She said they would advise their marketing company to remove it but I'm not holding my breath on this.

October 6th, 2011 MATT TEXAS 1962 TX

This is probably no less than the tenth different phone number that has come up according to most blogs i have seen as the American Heart Association. I am getting rather tired of this scam and have no intention of donating or talking to these people. If caller i.d. says you are " UNAVAILABLE " to me, then i am unavailable to you.

December 29th, 2010 Resident47 RI

Please know that the calls AHA authorizes commercial fundraiser InfoCision to drill us with are often not properly announced via Caller ID. There is only so much "caring people" can stand of daily mystery calls which border on harassment, placed by a million-dollar business which keeps half or more of what it collects for its charity clients. Please don't try to claim that coaxing people to propagate your junk mail is not somehow soliciting funds.

They have been calling incessantly for at least a month - even on Saturdays and Sundays! I'm not going to answer and I'm certainly not going to donate money over the phone. STOP CALLING ME!

December 23rd, 2010 J CT

The person on the other end said she was from the American Heart Association. I know charities are exempt from the DNC register but think the caller ID should identify them rather than simply "toll free". I'm also tired of getting calls near dinner time from these places--and especially so two days before Christmas when things are so busy for all of us.

December 18th, 2010 Rickus Loganius IA

This # called me at 10:55am CT today (Saturday) Calling the # back gets a message saying the call cannot be completed. First time I've gotten this call.

December 13th, 2010 HeartSick GA

This is the AHA and it turns out that they have their own DNC list. They are very responsive if you call them back at this number, and will put your number on their do-not-call listing immediately. It's no big deal, it turns out, so don't stress over it... take care of it with one call of your own.

December 4th, 2010 Resident47

At least AHA admits Akron call center gorilla InfoCision is the hired gun. But all these groups have this annoying notion that addition to the no-call lists is only binding until the next campaign. The softsoaping in the letter Linda reproduced is a little galling. The DMA and the DNC list don't apply to charities, they fail to mention. Maybe rather than "investigate this further", AHA could alter its contract with InfoCision to stop the aggressive pelting, or better yet quit hiring the damned place year upon year.

Also absent from the letter is the fact that as a commercial entity, InfoCision is expected to honor its own no-call list and add any number upon request. Break that order, the FTC declares, and "the telemarketer may be subject to a fine of up to $16,000."

November 20th, 2010 Linda

This is from the American Heart Assoc. I e-mailed them to remove me from their list on Nov. 11 and, for a while, the calls stopped. Now they've started again. Here is a copy of what they sent back to me originally.


Dear ***,


Thank you for contacting the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.



The call you received appears to be part of our Dear Neighbor campaign. February is National Heart Month and kind-hearted volunteers send out letters with life-saving information about heart disease and stroke and appeals for donations. The volunteers then send us the sealed envelopes they get from their neighbors or the donations may be mailed directly to us by the donors themselves. You may read more at www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=3019523

We apologize for your bad experience as it is not a true reflection of your American Heart Association. These calls are outsourced to a vendor called Infocision and we would like to investigate this further. We will remove you from the call list, and removal timeframe would be within 24-72 hours.

As extra information, the Direct Marketing Association offers an easy-to-use Mail Preference Service that can reduce the amount of mail consumers receive by as much as 80 percent by taking their names off “prospecting” lists that companies use to identify potential new customers. It’s easy to sign up at www.dmachoice.org. You can also add your telephone number to the Do Not Call registry at www.donotcall.gov.

We are committed to providing our customers with an exceptional service experience; therefore we are interested in your feedback on the quality of service you received from us in this email. Please take a moment to respond to our brief survey by clicking on the link below. The feedback received will be used to improve future service and communications provided to you. American Heart Association Survey


If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to write again or call 1-800-AHA-USA1 (242-8721). We are here to serve you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Thank you and have a great day.

This is the 4th # they've called from. Call several times every day. I will not donate to any organization that makes what I consider harrassing calls!!

September 24th, 2010 Jerry W. NY

I donated to these folks earlier in the year. Besides the annoying phone calls they continue to ask for more donations on a monthly basis. I think the only way to stop them is to stop donating. Mayb e then they'll get the message.

December 29th, 2009 Karen

I agree with Chris. I have given to this organization but never again. I have followed the advice of Kat and e-mailed them and hope they finally stop calling. I swear, the most annoying part of these calls is that if you pick up and say "hello" there is a huge pause and they they say "HELLO?" as if you called them!

December 24th, 2009 chris WA

It's too bad there is no direct way to email the AHA; they've lost me as a donor/contributor FOREVER due to these incessant and intrusive calls--several a day for the past couple of weeks. It's like I've told a couple of other charity callers, "Even if I liked your organization or your message, you've lost me as a customer because you JUST WON'T STOP CALLING despite repeated requests for you to do so..."

December 21st, 2009 Rerouter NY

Having asked politely to be removed two separate times, I continued to receive about 3 calls a week from AHA. There is apparently no guarantee that you will be removed, regardless of how nicely you request it or by what means. My final solution was to use my phone software (thank you, Google) to automatically recognize and redirect calls coming from any of the 9 AHA numbers to the AHA National Center in Dallas. That means that every time they call my number, it costs the AHA center one call to their 800 number. No more annoying calls from AHA!

December 10th, 2009 Randy

We keep gettin calls from this number on a daily basis, they are very annoying.

November 30th, 2009 Wendimere CA

Apparently you CAN get them to stop their calling campaign to your number. I finally picked up with the 888-355-7209 toll free number and spoke with a gal (new to the job and VERY polite, empathetic & helpful). She verified (by reading it to me from their records) my home number she'd called and said they would respectfully remove it from their list..HOWEVER..I then requested my number removed from ALL their toll-free numbers (that are listed in the excellent post below mine from 'Kat' on 11/09/09)).

At this point she asked if I would hold for a moment to let her check w/her supervisor on how to do that. Supervisor instructed her (I could hear her in the background) to tell me they would absolutely add my number to their 'MASTER LIST' for REMOVAL. So, DO request your number removed from THAT list as to avoid further calls from their myriad other toll-free calling numbers..

(They are allowed to call even if you're registered w/the National 'Do Not Call.gov' directory because of their 'Charity Organization' status. It is a legal call, so they are NOT breaking the law regarding 'Do Not Call'. Read the page at 'Do Not Call' for the info on 'allowed' organizations..)

If you want them to stop calling and circumventing your 'blocked numbers' list, check your caller id for the numbers in that post from Kat on 11/09/09. You can then pick-up and politely request removal.

I, too, was very annoyed for several months about all the calls (and the circumventing of my blocked #'s list) but found the solution (while still being polite) very easy. Some of these people, at least w/THIS organization, are young and desperate to bring in an honest income in this horrid jobless economy. Empathy can go a long ways toward making both you and the rep's day a little more pleasant..

November 15th, 2009 P.ed Off MA

No sooner do I block one number they call from another. I called AHA and asked to be taken off the calling list. So far it hasn't worked. I thought these numbers were spoofed as they were showing as toll free numbers but it's too much coincidence that I keep getting calls from numbers registered to AHA. It's two or three calls per day, including weekends, and it's been going on for a couple of months now. Enough!

The Dear Neighbor Campaign takes place during February, American Heart Month. Volunteers are recruited in the fall- the letter kits are mailed on Jan. 15th to arrive in your home around Feb. 1st. As a volunteer, you'll be asked to return donations from your neighbors by Feb. 28th.Each volunteer kit contains easy-to-follow instructions with supplies to mail letters to everyone shown on the assignment card for your block. (You will receive everything you need to mail the letters except the stamps.) Donations are processed at a centralized bank, but are credited back to your area to benefit your local community. It's easy and rewarding to volunteer. Call 1-800-464-7142

November 8th, 2009 A NOID GA

Called here Sunday @ 5:30--American Heart Assn Good Neighbor program. I discovered the secret of getting rid of them. I answered, there was the "automated pause," and I said "Hey, you called, a##hole, so what's up?" He clicked on--"Pardon me, I was looking for Mrs. _______, but I'll discontinue now due to inappropriate language."

SO YOU HAVE TO SWEAR AT THEM AND THEY'LL GO AWAY. I CAN DO THAT.

THEY GET GOV'T MONEY, SO THEY'LL GET NO MORE OF OURS.
