Review for American Institute for Cancer Research, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

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.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?

No

How did you learn about this organization?

Never heard of it before.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I did not open package.
