Whenever I receive some text messages of unknown people, I name them as “unknown1, unknown2”, or depending on the text message they send like “lechon, video” or “spammer1, spammer2” for those who send me that “I won PhP850,000.00 from the Vice President of our country”. I received a text message last week where I was “told to buy roasted pig (lechon) because my nephew passed the board exams”. That mobile phone had no load, so I just made its monicker as ‘lechon’. That way, I will know if the person is a spammer or scammer. While I was interacting, my phone rang, and then followed with text messages about the roasted pig. Twice I missed the call, until the caller identified herself as the sister of the supposedly owner of my number. I had to tell her, “Ma’am, you are calling the wrong number. I am female and I am not your brother!” the lady apologized and hung up. It is indeed a “wrong mistake”!

wow, hija. You should have said, "which one?". Oh! If I receive calls like that, I will play with the caller. just kidding. I save numbers. Once, I received a text message, the typical one that said, "Save this number, I will send money later, I miss you all"! The number was actually my youngest brother, and I named him SCAMMER. He texted me informing me that RL his son, had fever and productive cough. This was last month.

It is really annoying that many people are scamming the others for their profit. I think government need a stricter law about sim cards we are purchasing. Anyways, congrats to your "wrong mistake" caller for her son passing the board exam haha!
