Lately, I've been receiving 3-4 emails a day from job listing services in NY. I've also been contacted by a NY university letting me know that the admissions packet they sent me was returned due to an incorrect mailing address.
I am not looking for a job or applying to universities. I don't live in New York.
There appears to be a gentleman in NY with the same name as me who has been registering for a half dozen job sites with my email. He actually uses my email with a period between my first and last name, which on Gmail sends messages to the same address as an email without the period.
My question...is there any way, other than clicking unsubscribe at the bottom of these emails, that I can curb their delivery? Also, is this just a knucklehead that thinks email addresses are magical and you can just enter your name @gmail.com without actually owning the address? Or could there be some nefarious activity associated with the use of my email so blatantly incorrectly?
