Audio engineering is a promising vocation that delivers immense possibility in movie, video manufacturing, sound broadcasting and promoting. Audio engineers use a number of recording units these kinds of as large-tech microphones that are expected to report even the slightest variations of sound.

The normal principle of engineering relates to creating bridges, buildings, roads and very similar type of function. Most persons do not consider of audio engineering as a sort of classic engineering. Nevertheless, it is 1 of the highest spending work and has many profitable persons functioning in the subject.

Audio conferencing has by no means had a technological innovation champion. The sector leader historically was the lethargic AT&T whose when progressive Bell Labs dabbled with internet technologies and then broke apart. The Little one Bells carried on this tradition. Thus, the community has in no way had an ground breaking advocate. A new breed of entrepreneurial innovators is starting a populist revolution.

Answered the call after ignoring 10-15 previous calls from that number. They were selling Reverse Mortgages. Told me their company name was Senior Solutions, they were in Long Island NY, and I could call them at 516-520-5000 if I was interested. I looked up that name, address, and phone and found Centricom Inc at that address and phone number.

I answered the call on my cell phone 11/10 and 11/11 and they were wanting to renew a subscription for a doctor's office. I told them they had the wrong number and asked them to remove my number from the list.

I also noticed something else; the creator of the Centricomm website is also named Steve too. http://www.sowebdesigns.com/
Created/Owned by Stephen Ostrow.
Anyone else thinking that Steve Howard just might be Stephen Howard Ostrow?
Lets have a look as his website's DNS info, shall we?

Well what do you know? It's the EXACT SAME address for the company AND the creator of the website.
Seems like a phone call to the Attorney General in NY is in order right about now.

According to their website: Centricomm, Inc., 1900 Hempstead Tpke., Suite 300, East Meadow, NY 11554 / Phone: 1-800-775-7574 / Fax: 516-542-2329 / Steve Howard - President & Customer Service - 516-542-8600 / Email: showard@centricomm.com

I love this statement on their site: Centricomm, Inc. maintains 3 USA call centers, and an in-depth IT department specializing in Circulation Requalification/Reverification/Renewal and New Name Subscriber Acquisitions.. all to the most exacting audit bureau 100% rule compliance.

100% Compliance? Really? o_O So when people ask you to stop calling them and you still do, that's considered 100% compliance?

Calls from 888-451-6565 are coming in at almost exactly the SAME TIME (can you say Auto-dialer?) EVERYDAY for OVER a week now. EVERY time I try to answer, it hangs up on me. According to AT&T and the FTC's website, that's considered harassment and is prosecutable with fines and possible jail time.

My number is listed on the DNC and I rewnew it yearly to make sure it STAYS on the DNC list.

Irregardless of whether this number has a relationship with this company or not (which I do NOT), this company does not have the right to call me BEFORE 6AM (received two calls so far at that time) and everyday at exactly 10:42 AM for over a week now. I work at night, so I'm sleeping at this time and don't appreciate the nonstop nuisance calls.

A copy of this entire message is also being sent to the FTC, via their website, and I will be opening a complaint should ANY more calls come in again.

Guess it's time to look into that call blocking feature now...

If you call that number, you will get a human. They have been calling my number up to 10 times a day.I let my answering machine pick up any calls that I can't identify. They are calling to verify that you want a free magazine subscription.It takes a bit of arguing but they will remove your number from their call list. BTW. Jason was incorrect...they are not Peconic Bay Marketing, 958 Portion Rd. Ronkonkoma, NY. At least not any more!!

Have called every single day. I work outdoors and can't check my phone until later on at night. I worry when I miss a call because I think there could be an emergency. These people never leave a message and when you call you get an answering machine telling you to leave a message.

I am with a larger law firm. This number stared calling us this week multiple times per day. When we pick up no one is there. Call it back and you get buzzing noise. This is most likely a predictive dialer system used by a soliciter. I'm thankful for the post from "Jason" and now that I have a number and email address I will call them and tell them to stop calling us too.

Some more calls today. There were several more of the hang-ups so I decided to answer with just a "Hello?" as opposed to my business greeting. This got someone to actually answer and ask for someone who works here in regards to a mag. subscription. I told them I wanted our number placed on the do-not-call-list. She refused. I am going to make another report to the FCC.

No one on the other line - then it hangs up.
Calling us every day for a week at least!
Dialed *66, got this 888-451-6565, and when I called, it gives me this message: "If you would like to make a call, please hang up and try your call again. If you need help, hang up and call your operator for assistance."
Why the f*** do people and businesses have to be THIS RUDE!!!!! I can't believe it. I'm a receptionist - not some guinea pig to see how many times you call before I lose my temper. This is unprofessional, and obviously frustrating.
So, if they were trying to direct us to this site to map their complaints, it worked.
SO FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We get 5-10 calls per day from this caller ID and never get anything but 2-3 seconds of dead air and then a hang-up.

When calling it back, we get a message stating "The number you have called has been disconnected or is no longer in service."

Good luck.

I did the call trace, *57 after the 3rd trace I followed the instructions and called the 800# for call trace. The traces were successful and they were able to locate the phone company that issued the number, and the company calling from it. They told them to remove our number. It took about a week for the calls to stop but they did.

We had several calls from them yesterday at our business. The first couple of times they asked for someone and after that there was no one on the other end. We even let our voice mail pick up the call after I saw the number on caller ID and they didn't leave a message. Very annoying when you have many calls coming into our business lines.

He he. They just called for 2nd time this morning (1st time they hung up). Asked for a guy who never actually came to work for us. Told her "this number is on the do not call list". She again asked for him and I said "Look, this number is on the do not call list and if you call again-I WILL PROSECUTE!" (as I remember it is a $10,000 fine!). Stay tuned-will let you know if they call, and I will prosecute and follow-up (I am just that kind of guy!)

Got my first call from them (Caller ID: Toll Free Call 8884516565) today, renewing our mag subscription, of which we have none. Asks for personal info and address for confirmation. Told her we weren't interested, she said "oh okay-thank you" and hung up. Hopefully this will be the only call we get from them at our place of business.

I have received 1-2 calls a day from this number. I normally don't answer and they never leave a message. When I finally answered 2 days ago, it was for some magazine subscription renewal that I never got. Then they started asking for personal information "in order to cancel the subscription". I very rudely told the woman never to call this number again, and I have received 4 prank calls from the same number in the last 2 days- when I answer, they hang up. I am reporting this to my cellular provider and the authorities.

Called me 5 days in a row, left no message. Finally today I answered and it was someone (Jamal from OSP Magazine) wanting to verify my mailing address for a magazine subscription. They wanted to know the first letter of the "town I was born in", which I thought was weird. Seems fishy. I wouldn't tell them anything personal.
