My husband recently received the "Thanks for volunteering" postcard followed by the "Volunteer Packet," which led to my research. He is not going to solicit neighbors (especially since he doesn't remember signing up for it). Plan to notify them by mail that he will not be doing it. Will post more if we hear from them again.

A friend who's son has cancer received a soliciting package in the mail from AICR requesting that he solicit donations from several of his neighbors. The package contained a short list of several of his neighbors and their addresses. The package was not requested and contained the name of a neighbor that he did not get along with. We decided to do some research and found this site. We are glad we did.

Two days ago I received a packet from this organization with the following on the front address page:

HERE'S THE OFFICIAL VOLUNTEER KIT YOU REQUESTED!

I did not request a volunteer kit nor have I talked to them about one, ever, as far as I know. I think there is a similar charity
in Wash DC I had contact with some time ago, but it called itself Breast Cancer Research or the like and I opted out in writing.

In any case this type of mailing, unsolicited and across state lines must constitute some sort of violation - or many.

Can't say it's fraud, but it comes close.

The Great!

I have had no experience with them except for this unsolicited and frankly brash mailing.

Stop this type of mailing immediately.

These people conned my elderly mother on a fixed income into giving a donation regularly because my wife died of lung cancer. My mother thought she was donating to research on cures for cancer and AICR is not that.
My mother has not contributed anymore for more than a year and does not want
to.
They will not stop harassing her on the phone. Every single day they call, I put their number on the blocked calls list with my phone company and the next day they call from a different number.
This is a scumbag, disrespectful tactic.

The Great!

Their telephone harassment.

I would respect people who decline to donate further.

This organization uses the telephone for soliciting donations in an unscrupulous manner. My mother-in-law receives daily calls from theam (different numbers, but registered to AICR). When she answers, there is no one on the line. I did some research on the Internet to find out who was calling her, as she is elderly, and it really spooks her to get these calls. It was easy to find the answer on the Internet, because, it seems, the experience is widespread. My mother-in-law is on the "do not call list," by the way. That is a really bad use of money for a charitable organization- repeatedly calling people on the "do not call list" to get money from them.
