"It is not illegal for telefunders to call telephone numbers on the FTC’s Do Not Call Registry, but consumers can stop such calls by telling telefunders and charities to place their number on the charity’s internal do-not-call list. All telemarketers, including telefunders like JAK, are required to honor such requests.

Telefunders and other telemarketers are also required to limit their use of automated “predictive” dialers. Such dialers can place calls so rapidly that there are not enough telemarketing representatives to handle the calls when they are answered. When an automated dialer fails to connect a call answered by a person to a live representative of the telemarketer within two seconds, the call is “abandoned.” The FTC’s Telemarketing Sales Rule requires that telemarketers limit the use of these dialers so that they do not abandon more than three percent of the calls that are answered by a person. The Rule also requires that telemarketers connect any calls that are not connected to a live operator to a recording that identifies the caller by name and telephone number."

Add 202-607-2809 to the list of numbers. They call at least twice each day, four rings and then hang up.

I sent them an e-mail telling them if I received any more calls, I would report them to the FCC. I am receiving their calls from
1-202-652-4597. Their e-mail address is aicrwew@aicr.org. Good luck in getting them off your back.

AICR is the American Institute of Cancer Research with an aggressive and reportedly impolite fund raising program. As a charity they get a one star out of a possible four star rating. The President and VP command salaries of over $275,000 each. For a direct link to the Charity Navigator report see http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=3264

These people use 202-607-2615, 202-607-2601, 202-607-2603, 202-607-2611!! I'm sure there are more numbers because they call almost every day and it has been going on for weeks. This has got to stop!! I registered a complain with the Do Not Call Registry! Their site for complaints is:
https://www.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx Maybe if enough people complain they will do something.

I've heard this place isn't a not for profit. They harass many people all the time and is a scam.
