We have caller ID it just says OHIO CALL. I am wondering if it is political calls for the area. We are a registered do not call number. And I was informed charity,and political calls are exempt.
We have received two phone calls from 419-999-0055. After our initial "Hello", there is no response. We then remain silent until the phone electronically/automatically disconnects with the message, "If you'd like to place a call, please hang up..." We do not know who is calling, but find it is annoying.

Called my cell (that IS on the do not call list) left no message after 3 calls .
They call and do not leave a message. I recieve more than a dozen magazines that i have never ordered or paid for. I wish it would stop, i do not read nor want the piles of magazines in my home.
Yeah They called me and said I ordered some magazines And that they were up for renewal or cancellation And I needed to give them my original card Number on file So that they could cancel it I told them I no longer have the old card They said that's fine a new card will work they just need it for an authorization number Sounds too much like a scam to me.......
I got a call and called them back. It is from "Coast to Coast Renewal service." I not only get calls from them (and ask to get put on their do not call list but they still call), but they have been sending me magazines over the last year or so. I have told them repeatedly that I did not order the magazines, and I will not pay for them. A couple of times they attempted to charge my credit card, and I was able to get them to un-do it, but I have to monitor it (and am going to cancel it as soon as I change my auto-pays.) Anyway, they (or somebody they are connected to) are a scam, be careful! (I'm getting 16 magazines a month, which I give away/donate - but it is still a hassle!)
Called and asked if I got my magazines. I didn't order any. They said I did on the phone and that I gave them my credit card #. I cancelled the card just in case they do. I've gone through this before and expect them to call on different numbers.
Just got a call, no voicemail... Just wondering also
Stop calling me is all te number said this is really creepy

I received a call from someone from koch &, associates threatened me about a old debt in 2008 and said there sending a government official out to arrests me if i don't pay
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, is warning consumers to be on the alert for scam artists posing as debt collectors. It may be hard to tell the difference between a legitimate debt collector and a fake one. Sometimes a fake collector may even have some of your personal information, like a bank account number. A caller may be a fake debt collector if he:
•is seeking payment on a debt for a loan you do not recognize,
•refuses to give you a mailing address or phone number,
•asks you for personal financial or sensitive information, or
•exerts high pressure to try to scare you into paying, such as threatening to have you arrested or to report you to a law enforcement agency.
If you think that a caller may be a fake debt collector:
•Ask the caller for his name, company, street address, and telephone number. Tell the caller that you refuse to discuss any debt until you get a written "validation notice." The notice must include the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor you owe, and your rights under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
If a caller refuses to give you all of this information, do not pay! Paying a fake debt collector will not always make them go away. They may make up another debt to try to get more money from you.
•Stop speaking with the caller. If you have the caller's address, send a letter demanding that the caller stop contacting you, and keep a copy for your files. By law, real debt collectors must stop calling you if you ask them to in writing.
•Do not give the caller personal financial or other sensitive information. Never give out or confirm personal financial or other sensitive information like your bank account, credit card, or Social Security number unless you know whom you're dealing with. Scam artists, like fake debt collectors, can use your information to commit identity theft – charging your existing credit cards, opening new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, writing fraudulent checks, or taking out loans in your name.
•Contact your creditor. If the debt is legitimate – but you think the collector may not be – contact your creditor about the calls. Share the information you have about the suspicious calls and find out who, if anyone, the creditor has authorized to collect the debt.
•Report the call. Contact the FTC and your state Attorney General's office with information about suspicious callers. Many states have their own debt collection laws in addition to the federal FDCPA. Your Attorney General's office can help you determine your rights under your state's law.
My dad received a phone call from this number stating that they were Ken Hasty from the fraud department (didn't say the company name), threatening that his associate (random first name that happened to share our last name) was under investigation for fraud and he was affiliated with the investigation. We have a very common last name, but don't know anybody with the first name they mentioned. The call is also from a cellphone in Ohio, and we don't live anywhere near there. Our local police department called and the person that answered refused to give their name, but said they were from Koch &, Associates, a Private Investigation company.
Spam/Phishing number. Operator won't give out any information on company or location. Be careful what information you give out.
