Wow, someone still uses actual travel agents? I suppose if anyone isn't going to understand their own email address it would be someone that still uses a travel agent.

I still use a travel agent, and I'm in the UK.
It's a hell of a lot easier to wander in and ask about which European cities I could easily fly to from Birmingham and then book a short break than it is to try and work that out myself, and the prices I've paid really aren't that different to what I might find online.

Pffh, that's really difficult. It's much easier to go and spend time talking to a stranger.

I've had another couple of these. The first was a lengthy email from someone at a bank as he'd arranged a mortgage appointment with Ross Taylor. He was detailing all the documents he needed to bring and also signed me up for their secure file transfer service. I replied and told him that he had the wrong Ross.

Today I've been signed up to Netflix. The other Ross Taylor is paying £9.99 for this and I can see his card details. They're different to mine which is reassuring but still, it's weird. I've logged into his account and can see a mobile number. I'm going to contact him tomorrow and let him know.

£9.99 means he's on the premium plan, which means he can have people watching from different IPs. Just go ahead and use his Netflix.

Keep skipping ahead 2 episodes so everything gets spoilered.

You can set up multiple log-ins for users on Netflix. Just set up one called "Wrong email, dude"

Find the name of his dead grandfather, add that name as a profile and then add all the old cowboy films they used to watch together to the queue.

That other guy who has the same name as me has signed up for an account on Wish.com.

So far, I've received about 8 emails a day from them with special offers. This is getting annoying.

Oh.. and he's also cancelled his Netflix account.

Of course, she's going to get an absolutely glowing reference!

Great at working in teams, adapted to new people really well, cleaned the jizz up after filming without having to be asked.

It looks like my doppelganger is going on a flight soon to San Jose from Denver. While there, they will be stopping at the St Julien Hotel and Spa.

I know all this as I've received all the booking confirmations to my emails over night. It's costing them $412.69.

The annoying thing is that it's all automatically been added to my calendar.

**Edit** It also appears that I can log into the trip details via the American Express Global Business travel website. It's ok though, for security purposes they only allow you to log in with the 6 character reference number (found in the subject line of the email I've received), my surname and my email address.

Air tight.

4 and a half stars on Tripadvisor. Looks quite pretty. Why not send a message to them via the hotel? Perhaps a fax of Pacman or something.

Some geezer in the US has signed up to two adult dating sites but I’m getting his ‘please confirm your email address’ messages, which I’m a) unsubscribing from, and b) deleting. I wonder when he’s going to realise that there’s a fundamental problem with his account.

But I used stalkery web searches to find the intended recipient so I have informed both the person it should have gone to, plus the person who keeps typing his email wrong. The wrong email is he same as mine but with two numbers before the @ symbol so I guess he keeps forgetting.

Apparently i'm getting a delivery from YODEL today. It's got to the point now that I have no idea if any of my emails are actually for me, or for one of my many dopplegangers. I wonder if anything will turn up, I don't remember ordering anything, and the YODEL page doesn't have a delivery address on it.

Perhaps, though you’d just email the person sending emails TO the wrong address, which has been done, acknowledged for removal, but never actually removed. Plus Russell is pretty good at tracking down the intended recipients after having a dull enough email address that everyone thinks it’s theirs.

I used to do that, but 99% don't respond, so I gave up.

I think I'll just arrange some hot dates for him with obviously unsuitable matches.

I’m someone on the other side of this. My mortgage broker input my email address incorrectly so now someone else is getting emails meant for me.
