For random complex numbers, perhaps it would be clearer to refer to a "region".

RandomComplex[{0, 5 + 5*I}, 5]

{0.9378211150641933 + 
     2.4488359963758297*I, 
   3.2739899054454575 + 
     4.519996968693475*I, 
   1.9946657658816749 + 
     1.3564547704937988*I, 
   2.246863607357189 + 
     1.4197001523425845*I, 
   4.230857992100537 + 
     1.1462736498223762*I}

RandomComplex[{-5 - 5*I, 5 + 5*I}, 5]

{4.489356645361212 - 
     4.473926000458439*I, 
   0.3316263701423452 + 
     0.7330317793495915*I, 
   -3.7962075523324117 + 
     2.5405117415409713*I, 
   2.0662639944526653 + 
     3.450702486874583*I, 
   1.191807357128308 - 
     3.302582278065998*I}
