Requirements to Trace Harassing Phone Calls
Victims of these crimes must file a complaint with their local law enforcement agency. The investigating officer will fax a completed copy of the offense report to the Annoyance Call Bureau. Trap and Trace equipment is placed on the victims phone line for a 21-day period, (longer if requested by law enforcement). During the trace period, you must keep track of the dates and times you receive the harassing call, report each call to our voice mailbox (513-784-7993), within 24 hours of the time the call was received. After tracing is complete, the Annoyance Call Bureau will fax all trace results to your investigating officer within 2 working days. Contact your investigating officer for further information regarding options available to you.
Silent or Hang Up Calls
Some hang-up or silent calls could be coming from telemarketers. Telemarketers are now using computers to automatically dial phone numbers at random. When you answer your phone and no one is available to talk to you, the computer will hold the line open for one of his or her representatives or disconnect the call.

Fax/Computer Modem Tone Calls
These calls are beeping or loud squeal sounds when you answer the phone. Usually the person has programmed your phone number in a fax or computer by mistake. These machines are sometimes programmed to dial a number and if it doesn't reach the correct phone line, it will continue dialing until someone corrects the problem. When you answer the call and you hear these sounds, try dialing your telephone number two times in a row. This sometimes will send a signal to the other end to notify them something is wrong. If you have Caller ID and the phone number identified can't be called, call the Annoyance Call Bureau and they will contact the appropriate person to get calls stopped.
If none of these options work you can contact the Annoyance Call Bureau at 513-397-7366 for further assistance.
