I have been receiving calls from AICR. There are 3 different numbers calling mine.The caller ID shows AICR on all calls.
2-17-2010 1:55PM call from 202-461-3451
2-18-2010 9:10AM call from 202-461-3452
2-19-2010 10:23AMcall from 202-652-4597

I did not answer on the first two calls. No messages left. On last call when I answered fellow said he was calling for Cancer (I don't recall his exact words.) Wanted to send me 20 envelopes to address and mail out requesting donations. Advised him Sorry,no, as I was getting ready for surgery. He came back with a response of "it would only take 20 minutes of your time to address 20 envelopes". With that commant I hung up on him. Guess these idiots don't understand what the word "NO" means. I donate to my local Cancer Society only. Get mail from all over the United States requesting donations for a cancer society. These go in my recycable file.

This organization has been calling for days with different numbers showing on the caller ID. If I answer, no one responds; if I don't answer, no message is left. Quite annoying.

aicr soliciting donations. I've had 9 hangup calls in the last couple of days. When I called them back at 3:15 on friday, they were closed even though their introduction said they were still open . They could take some of that nearly half milllion salary their ceo gets and hire some real people to answer the phone. Don't they realize how much these hang up calls turn people away from their cause?

Balance Sheet: Fiscal Year Ending September 30, 2008
Note: The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot long survive, but the types of assets and liabilities also must be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

I called them back and told them to take my number off their call list. I think they are obligated to do that if you request it. Don't know how it could be enforced though.

It's obvious that these are political pollsters for hire, which are exempt from DO NOT CALL, like charities, but I don't get why nobody ever answers when I say hello, they just hang up. In the past, this number has worked for Dems, repubs, causes, but now it just seems to be dialing for no reason.

I get 3 phone calls a day from this number and from 202-495-7181, which I believe is from the same place. They call all hours of the day and it makes me pretty cranky. I cannot understand why the DO NOT CALL LISTING does not stop all these unwanted callers. Is it so hard to do??? They are very annoying.

This number has called twice. The first time I answered and they hung up. The second time they called at 8:13 am EST. I googled AICR and found "American Institute for Cancer Research". I am on the Do Not Call List. However, even for a charity or Non profit to call me, they have to abide by the rules! 8 o'clock in the morning! Ridiculous-

this number 202 461 3451 is in DC at the AICR - Cancer Research - I missed the call and won't call back. People get away with this because they say they are a non-profit. BULL - don't call them.

Just an F.Y.I. for those on the list complaining about getting this call and being on the "no call list". If the message concerns politicians, the "do not call" regulations do not apply. When "do not call" was initiated the politicians exempted charities and political messages. Big surprise there.

Anybody who is stupid enough to have a favorable opinion of Sarah Palin deserves these calls.

7/28/09 - Just received a call from 202-461-3451, said they were calling the a cancer research center and asked if I would send out letters to my neighbors asking for donations.
This seems strange since all the comments here reflect a call of a political nature.
Virginia

Calls from this number have been coming everyday for over a week, usually a few minutes after 7pm. It's a recording that says "Do you have a favorable opinion of Gov Sarah Palin." I've tried saying "not interested; please stop calling"; I've tried just hanging up; I've tried not answering at all when I see the number. Nothing works. My number is on the Do Not Call Registry. It's really irritating.

This is obviously a generic survey company which is hired by candidates' pollsters,, etc., etc.
You can CALL YOUR PHONE COmpany and ask them to put a block on the number!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a separate voicemail only landline number (which forwards alerts to my cell when I get a message). I CAN'T answer the d@#% call, but they persist. I complained mightily to my telco, and they're going to 'attempt' to block it.
Fight for privacy rights... demand "opt-in" rules, not 'opt-out'... 'opt-in' means you agree to take this crap, and you don't have to opt-in.
"Opt-out" means you'll have thousands of annoyances to opt-out of, until they create one all-encompassing opt-out agent that all telephone, mail and email, ETC., annoyers must adhere to.

We have got calls from this number EVERY SINGLE DAY around 6 o'clock for the past five days. Each time a recording asks whether we have a favorable opinion of Sarah Palin. We always have had a favorable view of her, but after all these pestering calls we decided last night that we don't any more. We are tired of the calls and want to make them stop.

Caller said his name was NYS Assemblyman Jim Tedisco and he was taking a survey. He wanted to know if I planned to vote in the March primary. I hung up without answering any questions. I wouldn't vote for any politician who calls after normal business hours or during dinner. His call came in at 6:31 PM. It sounded like a recording.

My father receives call from this number and no one is there.
I have him on a do not call list but it doesn't help.
He is elderly and doesn't need this hassle.
I've called the number, but can't reach anybody.
Can't something be done with callers like this?

Msg left "survey call to see if you have a favorable opinion of Sarah Palin....may call back later." The following evening rec'd another call but left no msg. Looked number up in White Pages reverse lookup and found (202)461-3451 is a Land Line with Cavalier provider and location WESTCHESTER, DC (not Washington, DC)

Received 2 calls (on both of my lines) simultaneously from this number. Says its a "public survey call, we may call back later". We are on the DNC list (which I'm convinced is a list they must hand out to telemarketers now).

I answered a call from this number. It was the typical political survey with trick questions. I don't like, or respect, my Congressman, I don't think I gave answers he wanted to hear.

The caller was Mike Huckabee, the Republican candidate from the last election. I hung up once he said his name as I have no interest in listening to him. However, this is not an election season, so I don't see how any candidate can be robo-calling me or anyone
