    Hello,

    Actually I don't think that this is a phone number from India. India has country code 91, but you should have a 10 digit number after the country code which you do not. This looks like a US phone number from the state of New York:
    -00 is the code used to dial this number from the UK
    -1 is USA's country code
    -914 is the area code followed by the 7 digit local number.

    According to the White Pages' reverse phone search this is a VoIP home phone:

    Thank you for explanation. My elderly father has been bombarded by this caller asking him to sell some shares he owns at a fantastic price. Yeah right. He's gently probing into my father's affairs and the next question will be about his bank account details. We have informed our local police and I've told my father not to answer the telephone. Despicable people at best, something unprintable at worst. I'll keep you posted.
