These people LIE (sort of). They are NOT American Cancer Society. Their name is intended to confuse people into thinking they are. Just like The Unification Church (Rev. Moon in the 80s) sounds like The Unitarian Church. They get NO MONEY from me. They get NO ANSWER from me. They get ULTIMATE DISDAIN from me.
Distribute info to my neighbors? Yeah, I'll do that. I'll tell them to WATCH OUT for these con artists!

Caller wanted me to solicit funds from neighbors for them. I said 'NO' and politely hung up.

Watching the AICR phone call patterns ( I have them all blocked). I have noted a sequence of calling ( occasionally a two day skipping of calls). Calls come at different time of day. This pattern has repeated twice and appears to be repeating for a third time.. (Results this far from 19 days of monitoring). (I have assigned arbitrary letters to keep track of these)

This is a "charity" where a significant number of employees make well over $400,000 each.Most of their funds go to their pockets although they give a little to several other organizations - check out their 990. They are NOT affiliated with the American Cancer Society. Check out this 'charity' on one of the charity evaluation sites before agreeing to support them. I have asked in writing to be taken off their calling list to no avail. After agreeing to deliver their 'packet' and finding out they wanted me to collect money from my neighbors when I got their packet, I checked them out and refused to do it. I'm so happy I didn't approach my neighbors with this clever scheme.

After a few dozen calls over ~3 weeks from several numbers with differing CIDs, I actually was able to pick one up. No response until after I spoke, indicating a robo-dialer with a live responder who did come on line after a few seconds. "Jason" stated that he was calling on behalf of the American Institute for Cancer Research and this was not a request for a donation (yeah, right! not yet). He was simply asking that I deliver info to 3 of my neighbors on my street (by name) to explain how proper diet and lifestyle could reduce their risk of cancer. I told him I already do that without their materials and asked to be put on their DNC list. He said that he would do so, but first needed to verify my number since they use an autodialer. He recited the correct number and stated that my request would be honored immediately. Remains to be seen whether I'll need to do that for each of their autodialers.

The dirty secret is that many charity calls are placed by a commercial fundraiser, such as Associated Community Services, Dial America, Harris, InfoCision, MDS, and TeleFund. These non-sales calls are exempt from federal DNC, even though such call centers are very much for-profit and pocket most of what their periodic campaigns collect. At times the ''charity'' client is itself a closet profit enterprise, compounding the deception.

However, as commercial entities, these hired call centers are expected to honor an internal 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.'' They are also covered to a point by other regulations for telepests, so you can kvetch about abandoned calls, bot calls to mobile phones, and so on.

What else to do? File complaints with the FTC and attorneys general, and the charity group doing the hiring. When the boiler room calls, try getting on a master ''no-call'' list for all of that firm's charity clients. (See more discussion under this number: 901-881-9984 ) If a given commercial fundraiser seems deaf to your demands, and/or merely renews its pestering with the next campaign, turn up your volume on paper. Send a cease-comm notice via USPS Certified with return card. It need not say more than to stop calling and writing whatever numbers and addresses you want protected.

A charity call campaign must usually be cleared through some agency or regulator in your state, and many states make activity reports available online. They often reveal a specified period of weeks or months in which the group is permitted to solicit, sometimes tracking well with the observations on these call forums. Find those reports and you'll find one more desk to advise of your displeasure.

A real pain! Yes, they are calling from a variety of numbers: 202-540-5118, 202-607-2927, & 202-643-1991. Sunday, 7/10 at 1:22pm, Monday, 7/11 at 6:38pm, Tuesday, 7/12 at 8:20am! Does anyone know if they can be reported? Or how can these calls be stopped? Already on the Do Not Call list!

Claims to be the American Institute for Cancer Research hoping to confuse with the American Cancer Society. They often call from a variety of numbers. A phony scam operation looking to make a money grab.
