I just received a call from this number but my answering machine picked it up. I
believed they have called me 4-5 times and looking for another person who has my last
name but not my first. I have told them not to call me. That this person is not a relative
and to please quit calling me. But to no avail.
I receive a call from this number 571-214-5430 yesterday night. When I answered a man voice asking
Reporting each call as a DNCL violation
last call few min ago -didn't know # so answr machine picked it up...left msg asking "Do you own a small dog?"
they've called several times over 2 wk period -refuse to answer it!
They have a new number they are spoofing now ... here is the thread ...
It probably is the CCadvertizing as posted below. But I am more than a little reluctant to give my info to a email address at ccAdvertising.com. Best thing is still to not respond at all. It probably will stop (finally!!) after the election season is over.
To Being Spoofed: same thing happened to me, I was getting all kinds of calls from people accusing me of calling them, what they don't understand is who ever this is is spoofing numbers and making is look like it us doing it. I almost changed my phone number but the calls have stopped (there was someone before me that was also getting harassed) Make sure you report it to your local PD, if someone tries to get you in trouble for it, the police say they can find a way to prove it is not you, but only if charges are brought against you, but have what has happened on file. I hope the calls stop soon.
This sounds like the calls I was getting from 571-214-5430
. I didn't answer those either, but there is some interesting information in the comments.
They started calling 3 days ago but don't leave a message
Send an OPT-OUT email to: gjoseph@ccAdvertising.com. Here are there web sites. www.americansincontact.org www.ccadvertising.biz www.freeeats.com
Received recorded calls several times various times of the day saying this is survey 2010 do you own a small dog. Finally said yes just to get the survey over with but the recorded call just said thank you paid for by survey 2010 and then hung up. I realized that I was scammed. The calling number was 571 214 5430 Called my phone company reported the incident and had that number blocked.
Just asks if I own a small dog
Seems like it's some Tea Party terrorists. The questions were all slanted as anti-Dem and anti NYC community center / mosque. The slant of the questions makes me think it was just advertising for the Tea Party whack-jos. You know there a mosque in the Trade Center towers when they were destroyed by terrorists.
After reading lots of these enteries I decided to add it to the blocked numbers with my phone service.....Hope it works.
Calling 3 times a week, I dont answer it but they leave the message "Do you own a small dog". I'm on the do not call registry, but that dosnt seem to matter to the cell phone caller from Virginia.
I got a call from 571-214-5430, they said it was a survey and they asked me if I'm a registered voter, I said No and don't plan on it and I hung up. It is odd they did not ask me about a small dog.
Called asking if I was a registered voter, I just layed the phone down.

We keep getting calls from this number, which turns out to be a recording. The male voice on the recording says, "This is survey 2010. Do you own a small dog?", there is a long pause and then they hang up. Most recent call from this number was on Sunday 9/12 at 2:18 pm. Have called us at least 5 times in the last 2 weeks. Very annoying!!
called Sunday Sept. 12@ 2:45. Have not answered the phone. have called numerous times
looked it up and states it is a Washington Virginia number.
Called again. New Question. Is anybody in your household over 65? Then they tell me "This survey will end without a yes or a no" Like I'm going to be real disappointed if the stupid survey ends.
keep calling and hanging up on answering machine...glad I checked here...thought it odd that a cell phone would keep calling and hanging up, usually you know cell phone callers or it is a wrong #. but they call every day around the same time. very annoying
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.
This number has called me multiple times this week; three times today alone! How do I make it stop?
This is the same people asking a small dog question in this thread ...
Did they just move from Idaho to Virginia? No, undoubtedly forging the caller ID. For this reason trying to call them back or reporting them to Do Not Call Enforcement is not productive. Plus, it is not unlawful to take a survey, even a fake one, so National Do Not Call really doesn't apply. They probably want to get a list of who does and does not answer the phone. When they call you back with their real agenda you won't even know its them, they will be forging yet another caller ID. Could be an early way to find out who answers the phone and when for some election year push.
called at 6:20 pm on sept. 9 2010 "do you own a small dog?" Automated
Keeps calling and hanging up on my answering machine. About twenty calls so far. I am tired of removing calls from my answering machine.
called @ 7:14 Sept. 8th. Initial recorded announcement was "calling with a brief election survey" = HUNG UP IMMEDIATELY !!
It is an AT&T "Go Phone". Do not answer if you see the number on your caller ID - or if you do answer just yell something profane like me! You can call AT&T and complain - as I did, and maybe they will listen if enough people call. Filing a complaint on the Do Not Call Registry seems to have little effect. Even if the number gets canceled, they will just get another Go Phone though...
Same thing-- "do you own a small dog?" Automated
I'll be in VA next week. Got a friend who can ID this clown. Would like to meet face to face and jerk a knot in their ass after it shove the phone up it.
Major Pain Sep 08th, 2010
Called for fourth time, goes to voice mail, hangs up. Caller ID lists Cell Phone 1-571-214-5430. I am going to block number.
Male voice - left a recorded message - 5:48 p.m. on a Tuesday - saying this is a "public survey" and he may call back.
Much the same as others. Recording of a male mentioning that the call was paid for by "Survey 2010," making one think immediately that it's a political survey. Then it asks, "Do you own a small dog?" followed by silence. I answered, "yes." Got a "thank you, this call was paid for by Survey 2010" and a hang-up.
Guess what, guys? My small dog BITES!

cork soakers wanna call with bs.. take my sniper bullet in va an letsee you call me with this scam bs again.
whogivesafug Sep 07th, 2010
Nuisance caller calling several times a day and leaving no message with our answereing machine
Same exact message "This is survey 2010-Do you own a small dog?" The caller ID says Virginia call, and the # is 571-214-5430. I did a reverse lookup and it says it is a cell phone in Arlington Va. It even gave me the longitude and latitude. Maybe we should have uncle louie and cousin sammie go over there and beat the sh** out of this person and he'll stop with the nuisance phone calls. I too am on the do not call registry. Tomorrow I'll give the state attorney's office a call. If this involves interstate fraud they need to be nailed to the wall.
Did not answer but glad that I reported this one here. Very deceptive with the change in Caller ID.
I got the call from 571-214-5430 on 05-SEP-2010. I answered because it showed up on caller ID as a wireless caller, and I thought it might be someone in need of help. The recording said, "This is a survey. Do you own a small dog?" I Replied, "Yes." The caller said something that was incoherent. The caller then simply hung up the phone. What it this all about?
Getting the phone calls with no message but from this number. Just researching to see what the deal is. Two calls.
Virginia call 2x
James Hillary Sep 06th, 2010
Got this phone call 571-214-5430. Caller ID reported WIRELSS CALL / A recording asked if we had a dog. Hung up immediately.
BE From Texas Sep 06th, 2010
Caller phoned us and asked: "Do you own a small dog?" then hung up! What the heck?
This call comes in once a week from this number.
Recording on ans machine said "Do you own a small dog?" then hung up.
My caller ID said "WIRELESS CALLER". Reverse phone directory search turned up a cell phone number in Arlington, Virginia. Call came to my home phone on Saturday, 09/04/2010, at 17:33 CDT. I always refuse to answer any call from any blocked or otherwise cryptically identified phone number/caller. Thank God and AT&T for Caller ID! Our home phone is listed on the national and on our state's DO NOT CALL registries.
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.
Do you own a small dog? This survey is paid for by Survey 2010
My caller ID said "VA Cell" -- has called repeatedly.
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 â��Small dogâ��. (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......
2 times this week, got a call from this number, it went to the recording long enough to record the phone audibly being slammed down and disconnected. This is additional FYI for those that receive calls from this number. From what I have read so far, don't answer this call.
help! somehow my number is calling people leving this message "do you own a small dog"
and people are calling back pissed...
how do i stop it?
being spoofed Sep 04th, 2010
Did not answer, niosy (angry?) hang up on voice mail. ID said "wireless caller"
Richard Serpe Sep 04th, 2010
Same as the rest. Survey 2010-Do you own a small dog? Just hung up.
"Survey 2010. Do you own a small dog?" I hung up immediately.
Sometimes when they call me the Caller ID says "Wireless Caller" or something like that. Maybe it is, maybe it's not a wireless phone; I know it is very possible to "spoof" people and cause a false phone number and false Caller ID data to show up on our Caller ID's. So DO NOT ANSWER CALLS FROM THESE PEOPLE or from ANYONE that you do not know FOR SURE who it is. If you do, when they ask you ANY question to which you might conceivably answer, "yes," DON'T! You may discover, (or maybe you'll NEVER find out), that they have done something such as maybe add a charge to your phone bill...maybe 50 cents, maybe a dollar, maybe 5 dollars....and do it month after month after month after month for years and years.....maybe you will never "snap" and realize that this charge has been added to your phone bill, because if you do see it show up, it might say something like: "911 emergency services access" charge, or something like that; something that if you see it, you might think it is a legitimate charge. Meanwhile they are collecting that 50 cents or that one dollar or that five dollars every month from thousands and hundreds of thousands of people....maybe MILLIONS of them...in MANY countries! Can you imagine how rich and how fast they are getting rich off of scamming people??? I think we need to HOLD OUR PHONE COMPANIES RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS because they KNOW this is happening yet they allow it to continue. Could it be that THEY are getting some profit off of this themselves??? I say we each and every one send an email or paper letter to BOTH the Public Utilities Commission and also to the Attorney General's office in your state DEMANDING that they do something about this! I am so angry about these worthless *%#*^*#^*# doing this, taking advantage of the elderly, the not-so-bright, the gullible, the naieve, the trusting people in this world that if I knew who they are and could meet them face to face....I cannot say here what I would like to do to them. They are the worst of the worst. Mean people suck. People like that make me actually hope that there actually is a hell.
Dean in Abilene Sep 03rd, 2010
We are getting these calls regularly and have not answered, so they hang up. We are on the Do Not Call registry.
asshole wouldnt talk just breathing
They have called many mnay times. I am also on the don't call list.
Do you own a small dog. It was a mans voice.
Washington call Sep 02nd, 2010
I didn't answer and they didn't leave msg
I DID NOT ANSWER. THERE WAS NO MESSAGE LEFT.
receiving calls from both P30PLE RSPNZ and 571-214-5430. Do not answer if this call comes up and if you do answer NEVER SAY YES to any question asked...it is a scam and they will bill you for services you did not order and then they say they have you agreeing (yes) to them.
READ THIS ARTICLE RE: CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER! http://ctwatchdog.com/2010/08/30/do-not-respond-to-survey-calls-or-to-dogs-barking-on-the-phone
Today was the first time this number called my house. The caller ID said Wireless Caller. I did not answer as I didn't recognize the number or the area code for that matter.
If you do answer just say I have SMALL DOG. Or say I will be recording this for trainig or quality purposes and see what happens.
survey 571 do you own a small dog
have received phone calls from this number 3x in 3 days - today at 2:25 pm -- i don't answer because i don't recognize number on caller id -- after my voice mail kicks in they hang up from what sounds like a land line phone slamming down.
Numerous calls from several caller ID's with the same recorded message, "Do you own a small dog?" then hangs up. Are they looking to see times that someone is home?
Survey 2010, do you own a small dog?
this is Survey 2010". Do you own a small dog?
I get calls almost 1 every day from this number and 208-758-0218
caller left a message.. the phone was left off the hook.. heard people talking in the background, a phone ringing in the background and a lot of noise.. could not tell if it was a call center ?? the message went on and on for 2 minutes
Like others, I also received a call from (208) 758-0218 about 10 days ago. Gather it's the same scammers. I don't pick up, and the caller hangs up when Human doesn't answer. I did report this one because the volume of calls on 208-758-0218
is 236 tonight (on this site alone!) and now about 40 from this wireless caller in 2 days. I have reported this one to complaints.donotcall.gov given the potential fraud involved. Creepy.
They've called us before from a different number. The machine picked up and there was a male's recorded voice that said something about "Survey Twenty-Ten" and then asked if I owned a small dog.
571/214-5430 is a cell phone number and when I picked it up, they just said "do you own a small dog". I hung up the phone immediately. They have called several times before. We are on the no call list but doesn't seem to stop them.
I have heard this is a scam!
Krys: Thanks for your information.
Annoyed: To Bad we can't file a complaint against Barack Obama.
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.
This morning at 9:59 a.m.,I received a call from this number. Caller ID showed "Wireless Caller". I picked up the receiver but didn't say anything. It was a recording that started with "this is survey 2010". Do you own a small dog? I didn't say a word, I just hung up. I received the same call last week from P3ople Respnz. I did not answer the phone. Then I read the complaints, that is how I know the "Wireless Caller" is the same SCUMBAGS. Now they will probably use another tatic, so beware.
Texas Again Aug 31st, 2010
A recorded message said "this is Survey 2010". Do you own a small dog?
It's a scam. DO NOT SAY "YES" to them! They record you saying "yes" and will use it against you later after they start charging you for some ridiculous "service" that you never see. When you call them to dispute the charge, they'll play a recording of them explaining the charges and terms with you saying "yes" at the end, like you agreed.
This happened to my mom at her job. Some company called, claiming to be a free business listing and wanted to confirm the address and phone number of the school she works at. When asked if correct, she said "yes" and they were later charged $1000 for a "special business listing with advertising" and when the people above my mom were trying to dispute it, they played back the message with her saying "yes" at the end. They had thought my mom authorized this advertising (public schools don't pay for advertising) and wanted to have her investigated, but when another person heard the "recording" she could tell it was fake and got them to back off and got my mom cleared, but since then, she won't say "yes" on a phone unless she knows who she's talking to. I do the same at home.
Also got a call Aug, 30 9:13 PM. Did not answer. I am on do not call list also. Seems to not be working. Lots of prank callers lately.
Keep finding 571-214-5430 Wireless Caller on my phone. Have not picked up the phone.
No message left on machine
this number calls 5 times a day
received a call on my wireles phone from this number at 8:14 pm mountain time.
Caller ID said "Wireless Caller" so I answered ... after all, who would be running opinion polls, telemarketing or automated message from a wireless phone? Well, my guess is that the source ID is spoofed. Isn't that illegal? Anyway, I answered and the pre-recorded voice asks: "Are you the owner of a small dog?" "Please answer 'yes' or 'no'..." So responded: "Yes or no". The recording then identified the survey company and hung up. I guess it didn't like my answer.
PrivateName Aug 31st, 2010
(571) 214-5430. Calls at odd hours. Recording asking if I approve of Barack Obama's policies. Filed a complaint with the FTC.
I received what appeared to be an opinion poll, but only if you agreed with the caller, i.e., Ronald Reagan's son.
Arlene Brooks Aug 31st, 2010
This number called today and only left a static message. Appears that P3ople respnz has changed to a new number
