[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] Phone-calls from unknown Sims without "Public number" quirk

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Italiano
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.62.67.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Having a sim on level 4 celebrity, but in reality I don't know, it never happened before.
What happens when the bug occurs? I get a lot of phone-calls, I don't have the quirk "Public number", or at least not yet but the game seems to react as if I have it. I get something like 6/7 calls per day from people I've never heard of and it is hella annoying. My celebrity level 4 sim has the 2 quirk slot occupied by "No touching" and "Refined Palate". I don't know if it is normal for a celeb but it never happened to me before. It started when my sims became level 4 celeb.
What do you expect to see? I expect not to have this tremendous amount of phone-calls if I don't even have the quirks "Public number".
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure

@Jiljan01 Are you sure they aren't in your friends list as you might have greeted them somewhere ? Phone calls have always been a bit overboard but should be from folks you know

Yeah, at first I thought they were somehow friends but then I've checked multiple times and it's always people I don't know. Also, from friends I get like invitations to events but from these people I only get that type of call that you can decline or accept only, with nothing written.

@Jiljan01 Did you ever have any Sim in the household that had the quirk end then removed it ?

No, I've always played with only this sim alone. Now I'm celeb level 5 and it seems like I get less phone-calls. It's really strange...

What sorts of phone calls are you getting, exactly? There are certain phone calls you will receive from sims you haven't met, such as invitations to charity parties or set ups for blind dates. These are all intended, and unrelated to the "Public Number" quirk.

@Bra1nBlast3d 6/7 a day ? Do you get that many as well ?

Job offers would probably also be one of these but I would think that many in one day is a bit excessive.
