Some dipshit who shares a name with me and lives in Ocala, Florida, is using my email address as correspondence for his (in arrears) Capital One account. It can't be for terribly much, because the last "missed payment" email I got told him that if he just held on and made minimum payments for 7 consecutive months (sent on 27 May), he could have a dazzling new credit limit of $500.

He's also had his rent statements sent to me, which is how I know exactly where he lives in a tumbledown shit pit in Ocala.

Suggestions on what to do about this irritant? I can find everything but a fucking valid email address.

Mail him a sympathy card.

Did the guy hack your email password or something. How is he using it.
That's the thing: he isn't using it. He's supplied it on his credit applications and to his landlord, but he can't receive emails via my account, because my gmail account hasn't been futzed with.

I even replied to the email that his landlord sent asking wtf was going on, and he told me his tenant had given him the wrong email address.

I take it these addresses are like JohnSmith123 @ email and he screwed up and wrote JohnSmith321 or something which happens to be yours.

Could respond to the bank or landlord email explaining what's going on, maybe word will get to him.

Or just block them.

Or send him an old fashioned snail mail letter explaining it.

It's a gmail address. I adopted early enough that [email protected] was still available. The way that works with google is that you can punctuate it or capitalize it any way you feel good about it. Generally, I use firstname.lastname, but that also means I own everything from [email protected] to [email protected]

I've tried the logical combinations that might get to him (he's got a different middle name than me, which lead me to believe that he might have the email [email protected], where middle initial and first letter of last name are the same), but none of them lead anywhere, which has led me to conclude that the guy's just a f'n moron.

You can add a dot anywhere to make it a completely different address. I did that with mine because the other was taken. The capitalization doesn't make a difference.
