Joe, I'm guessing that the guy from Idaho who was pegged as being responsible for these calls when they were originating from 208-758-0218 (check out that board) and who denied it vehemently, actually was responsible but didn't like being pegged for it, and spoofed it to a new number to try to distance himself from it. We still don't know the point of all these lame calls though. And just for the record, I got one from the 208 number, thought the small dog question seemed kind of random, so I just hung up without answering and haven't gotten another one of them. I'm still curious what it was all about though.

I have received many, many calls from this number. It starts with "survey 20" "Do you own a small dog". Now I am receiving exact same calls from a cell phone.571-214-5430). This time it is "Survey 21" and the same question follows. I sure like to know who is behind this. Do not try to call back. It just does not work. I am most annoyed and plan to report this to the Attorney Genaral's office. It is, indeed, a form of harassment.

3rd call tonight after 8/31 same Wireless Caller, and 8/21 P3ople Rspnz call (208#). I don't pick up. Going to report this scam *again* to and fcc. Thanks to Bev (9/1) and excerpted from her link below.

"Hundreds of people, including one of our readers, reported getting stranger phone calls from 208-758-0218 ....

I have a question that you may or may not want to address. Recently, I have been receiving recorded phone calls on my answering machine which consists of �Small dog�. (About one or two calls a day over the last week on both home and work phones.) The caller id says P30PLE RSPNZ with a phone number of 208-758-0218. I googled this to see if I could get any information on it. It seems that this is happening to many other people.

My question(s) are: (1) How can this be stopped? (2) Is this legal? and (3) What is the point, what are they trying to do or what is the scam?

What should one do? Do NOT respond, hang up, note the time of the call. Report it through this site "

If FCC.gov link doesn't work here, use Bev's link to get there......

360.net reports that the phone number 208-758-0218 is inactive and that the annoying calls are spoofing that number, meaning the calls originate from somewhere else. Only the local phone company doing a back trace can identify the origin of the calls.

Audrey: If you insist on worrying over your name and contact data being traded and sold, your first stop is the Direct Marketing Association, which upon request does a fairly good job of scrubbing names from a majority of lists.

I believe I have suggested from the start this is _not_ a legit survey, nor are these calls conducted like one. It can't be about marketing either, pet-related or not. Where is the pitch language? Where is the call to action? Disconnecting after one stupid question is not salesmanship. I maintain the calls are cold and blind, with the aim of creating a list of targets for .... well, fraud as yet undefined.

Dan: Yes, yes, DNC exempts certain categories of calls, we know this. But legal by statute is not the same as legal in intent. The FTC absolutely needs to hear about this, which smells like another example of the loophole jumping trend of covert sales and fraud. If you follow the discussions of push polls, sham charities, InfoCision, and Monitronics on this site and elsewhere, you find growing examples of abuse of those FTC exemptions.

You might want to follow the Dove Foundation story mentioned in that Wikipedia entry you linked. That bunch drove people crazy a few years ago, and possibly set the standard for the legal circumventions we have seen since from call centers with a pure profit agenda.

Like others, I received a call from (208) 758-0218 about 10 days ago. Today, I got a call from Wireless Caller 517-214-5430. Gather it's the same scammers. I didn't pick up, and the caller has hung up when Human doesn't answer. I filed a complaint on this caller because the volume of calls on (208) 758-0218 is 236 tonight (on this site alone!) within approximately two weeks. There are also now 40+ from this wireless caller in 2 days. If there is indeed the potential fraud involved, I hope anyone who has experienced such has reported it to complaints.donotcall.gov given . Creepy.

Phone Number Report: Another post says the person calling wants you to say "YES" so they can record your voice and start charging items to you. When you complain that you never ordered these things,they play the recording of your voice saying "YES". It will be difficult to get these charges voided.

These people have moved from the number 208-758-0218 to this number. They ask "Do you own a small dog". May not seem bad, but many suspect that they will use it if you answer "yes" to subscribe to services and charge you for them. Refuse to pay and well they take you to court, play the part where you say "yes" and boom you have to pay.

Either that or they are using the "yes" to give you to other telemarketers and such.

I got the dog call this morning, hung up without answering. Those who are pestering the FCC or the Do Not call enforcers should stop wasting their time. We are all bothered by these calls, but the Do Not Call laws don't prohibit surveys or polls. This includes other data, which could be used for marketing, as well as the political polls. People can Google (don't Bing) and read the wiki article or others about the law. The fact that the question spooks small dog owners and people find it suspicious really doesn't make it unlawful.
There is really no way to stop this, but if we let the machine screen calls whenever possible and hang up when we have to answer this will ensure we don't get put on a list of people who answer calls.
Longer term there needs to be more laws that prohibit auto-dialers, caller ID forging etc. They won't stop, they are making money doing it.

Here is the wiki article ...

Resident47: I don't think it's necessarily a pollster but I think someone has gotten hold of a list that we are all on (our pet insurance or our food orders or medicines?)-- what can be done with such a list, I have no clue...i think more of a scam than a prankster or pollster, but we need to get to who sells those lists and to whom. I don't know how/which authorities would handle, though those whose numbers are implicated (Mike, Melissa) will likely take care of. But if it were me, I would be investigating the source of those lists and from where they may be stolen.

" it's not random, we are all on some list together or how else would the caller know there was a small dog in the house ..."

Audrey: This is the much-repeated transcript of the call: "This is survey twenty-ten. Do you own a small dog?"

Firstly, a true pollster does not ask for data already known, much less fail to self-identify and disconnect after a single question. Second, since the caller is reported to have an artificial voice, it may be reasonable to assume a machine is dialing as well, a machine which may not require a defined and targeted list of purchased phone numbers. No, I'm more likely to believe a target list is being built _based on responses_ the caller generates. The whole thing could be automated.

On that note, I'm sorry I missed Amy's comment in this thread from a week ago, which makes the first glimmer of sense, much as it sounds like urban myth.

From another post:
Someone called me in Chicago using this number. All I got was "dowg"... which I thought might have even been an obscene phone call. Now I see others get a refers to "small dogs under 25 lb." So at least they were not calling me "dowg." When you call them back the phone does not ring. I have even an RCN operator try without success. At least I have company because there is a long list of complaints. Is there a way of blocking or removing their right to remain unreachable by people they have irritated?

There are a LOT of comments about this one-line "small dog" survey filed in the past two weeks, even in forums not devoted to tracking mystery callers. Thus far I don't see anyone confirming a true identity or agenda for this caller. I am unconvinced it's Ms. Wilson or Mr. Chase behind the racket. The former's locale looks like a residential area, and the latter apparently runs a small business service shop, with fewer than five employees, bearing an unfortunately vague name. I don't see what they would gain from a nationwide phone spam barrage.

The concept of a one-question survey is ludicrous given the effort needed to find cooperative respondents. By all accounts the caller gives no useful identification, which should immediately concern the wary recipient. Furthermore, what legitimate surveyor polling the general public would use a "l33t speak" business name?

To answer "TX Complains" from the other day, yes, phone numbers are spoofed every day. The goon generating these "small dog" calls could in theory be in any state or overseas and hide behind a borrowed business name and number, say in a part of Idaho no one would suspect or know of, which just happen to suit his purpose. Two scenarios are likely here:

A] A very bored prankster using cheap VOIP or Daddy's phone plan to ask the same inane question of random citizens

B] A very devious criminal collecting recordings of responses to an innocuous (yet still inane) question to be later used against responders in a fraudulent billing scheme. Thus, months later ... "But your honor, I never agreed to this service or any payment plan." ... "Your honor, we will now play a recording of the defendant accepting the service contract ..."

I am sympathetic to Mr. Chase. The recipeints of the call are random. Some own dogs. Some do not. If you really want to know whose phone number it is, there are many reputable companies who can tell you for a small fee. As one who has also been annoyed by this caller and has been frustrated with everyone on these blogs spinning their wheels, I went ahead and paid the five bucks to two different companies, Intellius and US Search. They each gave me the same information: The subscriber to 208-758-0218 is Melissa McGee, 2017 Alder Avenue, Lewiston, Idaho. Any free reverse address website will reveal that this address belongs to Melissa and Derek Wilson, home phone 208-746-5522. My guess (and this time I am just guessing) is that Melissa Wilson and Melissa McGee are the same person. So, if you are going to call someone, call this person, and leave Mr. Chase alone.

Your information is being recorded.
I suggest you:
Call your state attorney general’s office to report the calls
Trace the phone call through your phone company – check with them – here it is *57
Place a block on the offending number – again check with your phone company

You call to harass me – you will be prosecuted.
Got it?

REPOST:

This is Mike Chase of Database Marketing Inc.

Please be advised that we have absolutely no connection whatsoever with any telemarketing firm or telemarketing activities The perpetrator of this vicious hoax, known as “internet spam hunter” will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of criminal and civil law for his malicious harassment, defamation, libel, incitement and terror threats.

Any person or company aiding, abetting or otherwise participating in the furtherance of this unlawful activity will also be subject to available legal remedies. That participation includes calling any of the numbers provided by “internet spam hunter” with the intention of harassment.

Please exercise common sense regarding acting on anonymous internet postings. It is very simple to CHECK FOR YOURSELF who a particular number is assigned to on any number of legitimate websites.

It's Saturday, 4:30p. This was the third call since my last posting. This time I answered, and yes, it was the recorded male voice saying "This is survey 2010. Do you own a small dog?" I tried my own suggestion and answered, "The pearl is in the river." The recording said, "Please answer yes or no." I repeated, "The pearl is in the river." The recording said, "Paid for by..." I think he said Survey America, but then followed it with "208-758-0218", which sounded like the "fine print" disclaimers at the end of commercials. Perhaps if we all answer this way, we can blow their minds.

We called several times and the mailbox was full, today it just says the call didn't go through

Judging by the threatening language of poster Mike Chase, the likelihood of him being involved in this is high. If his company markets databases for calls, he is part of the problem. Why would it be okay for his company to enable phone marketers, but for him to have an problem with a few people calling him? One phone call is not illegal, but the repeated calls from these companies is harassment.

When I called the number it said the mail box was full. Your email address can be spoofed but can a phone number be spoofed? Can these people be targeting people on Facebook group lists. I never received this call until I liked some of the Dog Groups! I now longer have any dogs either. I still don't answer the calls. That Chase guy might have got caught with his pants down and is now trying to lie his way out of it. I am on the DNC list also and keep complaining to the FTC. I filed complaints with the FCC about other callers previously and they sent me two letters saying those call were not illegal. I have seen nothing from the FTC.

I got the dog call a couple of days ago, and got another call asking other opinions later. I always let the answering machine get it, so I just listened in. A couple of things can be happening. Remember that the very fact that a live person answers a call from such a number at 7:45 PM (or whatever) is its self data that can be sold to other telemarketers and fund raisers. Also, many survey orgs these days are fake, some aren't legit survey takers, they are trying to get your opinion on a list that can be sold to the real fundraisers/telemarketers.
Since they will no doubt claim to be a legit survey org, they will be exempt from National Do-Not-Call laws. I'm afraid the only thing to do is to never answer, and absolutely never ever give them any data or opinion on anything whatsoever. Always try to screen all calls, and only pick up for a "friendly" caller.

Perhaps this Mike Chase person I spoke with is not being honest, but wouldn't you think that if he were the one connected with these calls that he would have stopped them b/c he's getting a lot calls to his personal home. I'm sure he would have stopped it if he were able to. He said that it's a hoax or something. Regardless, this Mike Chase better change his number b/c there's a lot of pissed off people out there!

Several calls over the past 3 days. We never answer when we don't recognize the caller id, so it goes to voice mail. This caller never leaves a message, but then, does any scammer?
All these other reports say he always asks if you own a small dog. Maybe he's looking for a specific response, like "There are no small dogs, only small actors" or "The snows are deep in Leningrad in the winter" or "The pearl is in the river". Who knows?

I got the same message as folks below, except I noticed that it also mentioned "Laser Voice Mail." So I checked out their website, but no live person answered their phone. So called a different company name Kall8 listed at the bottom and gave them the info provided below about Mike Chase. The rep said they'd look into it. We'll see if that helps. Otherwise, I'm calling the guy myself.

They keep calling; I didn't answer once they said,"Do you own a small dog?" So I hung up but they keep calling!

Just called here, "do you own a small dog?" I said yep and he's mean as a 2 week hemorrhoid, do you want him? Let them come around my house looking for a small dog he's going to find the big dog, Tiny. Tiny is a 85 pound Dobermann that doesn't bark, he only bites. Sweet little Tiny! FT

File a complaint here: http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm

and

I did it once for each of the four calls on my caller id system. I recommend you all do the same so this person gets in seriously trouble.

P30PlE RSPNZ has been calling all week. Never leaves a message. Frigging annoying.

But please,never answer "yes" to this kind of call. This is an old business scam where they will record your "yes" and use it to say you agreed to buy something from them. We were ripped off once at our workplace by someone saying we agreed to buy their product, and they even played back the badly dubbed-in "yes" to us.

I live in area code 951. How IRONIC that Mike Chase is in the same area code as this bullsh*t call.

I'm filing a complaint with the FCC on all 3 numbers. P30ple Rspnz & the Mike Chase numbers. F**k this sh*t.

I have a terminal illness and this caller woke me up twice today.

Rude.

HOLD ON -- do not call 208-772-8293 or 208-667-6887. These are NOT the people who are calling us. Talked to Mrs. Chase and she has no idea how their number got connected with P3ople respnz.
When p3ople respnz called I told them that I had a small dog. Waiting for them to call back -- will get the correct number to get these jerks to stop calling.
Why is it that you track down and stop one jackass from calling -- then another one pops up the next week without fail.
