what do you do when you receive a phone call from a wrong number. do you pretend to be the right person or ask him to call later or pass time with the caller or just disconnect after informing the caller about the wrong number.

I don't prefer that I'm the right person he is looking for. I tell them straight that "sorry, you've just called a different number" politely. Sometimes they will ask for vital informations, never ever..ever.. give any informations to them, it is not safe to disclose information to strangers. With rampant kidnapping nowadays, we can never tell.

oopss.. what I mean for "prefer" is "pretend", just a minor typo error.

i staright away tell its a wrong number. i will never pretend to be the right person nor can ever entertain or pass time with it because i dont have to pass time with actual phone numbers, when some friend or a relative calls up so entertaining a wrong number is next to impossible for me.
