Called me at 8:50 Monday night and thanked me for my 2012 contribution, which I had sent in two weeks ago, in response to their direct mail campaign. Now they were looking for a committment for 2013. I told them that I no longer contributed to any organization that solicited on the telephone and that ACS has received my last donation. I will add them to my growing list of organizations that relentlessly call on the phone and make sure I do not contribute to them in the future. This telephone solicitation business has gotten way out of hand.

It's not a "problem solved" status when a commercial fundraiser won't listen to no-call requests. I'd lay odds this is InfoCision wrangling this ACS account, as it has for years. Helpful comments on ACS internal DNC and the pride of Akron are found under these numbers: 866-647-9734, 901-881-9984

Okay people, problem solved. It's the American Cancer Society Midwest Divisin out of Wisconsin. I had been receiving these for a few months now. I finally saw someone mention ACS. I helped run/organize an ACS walk/run here in my city.
Out of curiosity I asked a coworker sitting near me (who also spearheaded the event) if he had received any and he had just missed the same call (number).
We're going to try to figure out how to stop these calls and try to find a number that will work to call them back to have them stop.
It's not SPAM or some scam... it's just good old telemarketing through the American Cancer Society.

They have called our number for the past 6 weeks. Very annoying.

I didn't answer this call but I did try calling back and it states I've reached a number that has been disconnected and no longer in service. Probably a scam.

This has got to stop. They have called me 30 times in a few weeks claiming to be American Cancer Society seeking for donations or it is a courtesy call and they aren't looking for donations - but then ask can we rely on your continued support. Umm that is asking for a donation - idiots. Each time I answer and say I am not interested in donating money to a stranger over the phone. I ask to be taken off of their list, and they hang up and call right back and hang up. They have called up to 5 times a day just to harrass and hang up. I called the national American Cancer Society and filed a complaint regarding their telemarkers in Pewaukee WI. They apologized and said I would be taken off of their calling list. One more call and I am filing a formal complaint and harrassment charges agianst the telemarketing operator in Pewaukee. ACS should really hire better telemartketers instead of the rude and calous people they have in their call center.

You could report this to the phone company as an annoyance call. These calls are against the law.

They keep calling several times a day, very annoying. I don't know how these automated, programmed calls could ever work. I would never give these bastards a nickel much less the time of day.

When I returned the call with by just hitting call back on the phone, I got a "this number is disconnected" message. Very weird because it just called us 1 minute before.

There is no response when answering the phone from this number. Then there is a busy signal.
I have returned a call to this number and the line is always busy.
How do I get this to stop?

This person has called several times asking for me and my husband has said each time that he will take a message. This person refuses to leave a message and is asking when is a good time to call me back. There is never a good time to call me back!!
