Comment Wrong email addresses are more common (Score 1) 213

There is an artist in Vermont, a real estate person in Texas, and a guy in Britain who all routinely give my email address thinking it's their own.

It happens constantly. I've stopped being nice.

For the guy in Vermont, he signed up for voicemail. So I password-recovered his account, got his phone number, and gave him a call. Bastard got upset at me thinking it was a scam. Later... I got a request for a caricature for the police chief. So I drew one, MS paint style and sent a $300 invoice.

For the guy in Texas, I got some poor schmo's mortgage app sent to me from another real estate agent. I mean, full financial details. I replied letting them know they were probably breaking the law by sending it to me. I still get shit.

The guy in Britain has signed up for:
1. Online bill pay for his gas bill
2. Multiple online betting websites
3. A "find a naughty-housewife" website
I've password-recovered and closed all those accounts.
