More formal:  "ο ίδιος" (the same)

example:

caller: "Μπορώ να μιλήσω στον κύριο Μαυρίκη παρακαλώ;" (May I speak to mr Mavrikis please?)

answer: "Ο ίδιος.  Πως μπορώ να βοηθήσω παρακαλώ;" (It is me.  How can I help you please?)

Less formal:  "εγώ είμαι" (it is me)

examples:

caller: "Καλημέρα, είναι ο Γιώργος εκεί;" (Good day, is George there?)

answer: "Γεια σου Νίκο, εγώ είμαι" (Hello Nikos, it is me).
