Still, looking at sources like whocallsme.com does get lots of hits on that +1 (N. America) number.

A search on 6076259911 and variations such as 607-625-9911 or (607)625-9911 shows lots of people getting "Windows Tech" calls from that number. One lookup claims the number to be in Apalachin, NY.  No, I haven't called it ;)
