I've had numberous calls from this number.. finally today I answered it.
As stated below, no one said anything when I first answered the phone, finally someone came on.
I suggest playing stupid with them... make them repeat what they are saying, tell them you don't understand what it's all about and why are you "searching for me?" After all she said she was from the cancer "research". I don't donate money to anyone except for the local children's hospital, where I know how the money is used.

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.

I beleive they use 2611 & 2615 as well. The answering machine picks up and sometimes they say hello a few times and then they hang up without ever leaving a msg.

Besides 202-607-2611, also uses 202-607-2603, etc. If you want to spend your dime, call them back (maybe after hours; I did on Saturday) and press 1 for more information. Listen to the message, it will give you the option to press #3 and enter your phone# if you don't want to continue to receive their calls.

I will not fund any group that has such a phantom way of dealing with people.Besides , if they really want support ,send out an annual statement and budget(if you can get me on the phone)

I have received calls from ACIR at this number as well as 202-607-2611 and 202-607-2603. I let my answering machine take the calls but they never leave a message. They call every day.
