"CT" from July 2009 is correct. Moreover, AICR is practically a for-profit enterprise, itself hiring out for-profit "commercial fundraising" giant InfoCision. See discussion under this number: 901-881-9984
May I advise newcomers these forums are strictly for call recipients to share their findings. They are NOT direct open channels to the phone bank boiler rooms we comment upon. The magic phrase you want is "Put me on your Do Not Call list".

remove my name from calling list It's getting to be annoying because you are calling and calling and calling PLEASE STOP!
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
REPORT THESE PEOPLE TO THE DO NOT CALL REGISTRY! IF ENOUGH PEOPLE DO IT MAYBE THEY WILL INVESTIGATE IT. THIS IS REDICULOUS!! ACIS USES MANY DIFFERENT PHONE NUMBERS AND HARASS MANY PEOPLE, LIKE ME, DAILY!! I NOW HAVE 4 OF THEIR PHONE NUMBERS, ALL IN THE LAST 4 DAYS!!!
These people use 202-607-2615
, 202-607-2601, 202-607-2603
!! 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 answered the phone after two rings but no one was there. They have been calling everyday for the past week.
I emailed every available email address ( 'email@example.com'; 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; 'email@example.com'; 'firstname.lastname@example.org')at AICR's website to tell them to stop calling, and all the calls just stopped. Don't know if it was a coincidence, but it worked. I also sent them a link to this website to let them know just how annoying they are. Hope this helps a little...
'MP' Seems to have given good advice (below). I called back and followed his instructions to be removed from their calling list. We'll see if this works.
MP - I did follow the advice of "unkown" and called back the number. I got a recording that gives you the option of asking for further information about AICR. Press 1. You then receive another recording that does give you the option of being taken off their calling list. Press 3. I'll just have to wait and see if it works.
This call comes in several times a day and I have actually reported and filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission in Washington, D.C. I received a written response and we are in the process of getting this thing resolved once and for all. The amount of times this organization tries to contact people on a daily basis is ridiculous.
There is no reason that we have to donate to the American Institute for Cancer Research when we give a substantial amount of money to the REAL and LIGITIMATE American Cancer Society every year. I'm sick of it. I hope that it eventually backfires on them, quite frankly.
i phoned the company direct at 1-800-843-8114
and asked that we be removed for their call list. i also sent an email verification to their Communications Department that included name and phone number. good luck all.
They call for my father-law,since he use to own the home. The caller does not believe me when I say he is not hear any more, since I have a young voice. So I just ignore the calls, however I want them to stop.
3 calls as of today but they can stop any time.
I get calls from this number just about every day. I let the machine get it, but they never leave a message. Just delete it and move on.
I have the same story. I don't know who AICR are but I too am on the DO NOT CALL list. Is this list doing any good? Surely something can be done about these people. I work full fime and run my own business. The last thing I need is an annoying company wasting my time and I do mean "my" time.
Rcv calls at least once a day from AICR. They use different lines from the same exchange. I am on the DO NOT CALL list. I do not answer. They do not leave a messaage. I don't think we should have to pay for a ld call to have our name removed.
I receive calls daily from this same area code and number. I have not called them back. Instead I contacted the Attorney Generals office in the state of MO. about it.

This number calls all the time and I do not answer! Get the hint! Do not call back!
call from 202-607-2611
called and hung up upon answering. called it back and it said to press to to not recieve calls and press three to be taken off a list. I find it strange cause as the call came in without having to look at caller i.d. i already knew it was a call from washiongton D.C.. I guess my wonderful premonitional mind works beautifully!
I have received calls from ACIR at this number as well as 202-607-2611
. I let my answering machine take the calls but they never leave a message. They call every day.
Most rude person. Asked for my wife, said she was on a reference list of Annie??? and she has every right to call. Two days in a row.
They call everyday I don't answer anyday...................
AICR is The American Institute for Cancer Research
I get calls from this number all during the day, night and before going to church. I wish they would stop calling.
Our elderly mother is being hounded by this organization on a daily basis. This is the American Indian Relief Council. This must stop. It is not at all appreciated that she having to worry about rushing to answer a phone - particularly, as this morning, in trying to prepare for church. Hopefully, more people will respond.
