You were just contacted by a "hacker"....  You cannot retrieve the number becuase the number they used is not in service...they displayed that number to your home phone as a ruse to bypass any do not call registries.   You can block the number, but chances are high that they would use a different number in the future.  Hoping you did not give them any personal information.
