Assuming you put your data into a string variable called $data, then the following will pick out matches


$pattern = '~(\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4})~s';
$matches = array();

if ( preg_match_all( $pattern, $data, $matches, PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE ) > 0 ) {
    echo "Matches are:<br/>";
    print_r( $matches );
}

The PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE allows you to determine the offset from the start of the string in characters
