Type of a scam Counterfeit Product

The foreign individual calls claiming to be from a company called Windows 35 Technical Support. This has been going on for months. I advise the callers no one here has asked or called for assistance, nor needs it. I have asked kindly the few times to remove my phone number from the calling list. I receive a phone call or more every single day. My number is added to the NDC list, however after doing some research this is a scam call. And their phone number is registered with a company called SRT Communications INC located at 3615 N. Broadway in Minot ND 58703. I have attempted to call this company and have had not been able to reach them. This has become a nuisance and cannot tolerate these calls any longer. Please look into this and find out what type of scam they are running and put a stop to it. PLEASE
