I have a common email address. Basically my first initial and my last name. For years I’ve dealt with people (idiots) who seem to not know what their own email address is and use mine. These are all people who have the same first initial and last name as me. I’ve gotten bank statements, legal documents, login info for their e-commerce sites, videos of one of them getting arrested. All sorts of interesting stuff. It’s mostly amusing, sometimes a bit annoying but I just roll with it. Until now.
Apparently there’s someone distantly related to me using my email on hookup sites. Or porn sites, I don’t know. I and constantly getting hangout chats (Gmail) from these, beautiful, single women who ‘just want to chat’ with a ‘handsome man’ like me. Ok first, not a man, tyvm and secondly, stop! I’m getting anywhere from 3-10 a day and I can’t stop them. I tried going into my settings but it doesn’t give me the option to turn off chat from people who have my email address. I’ve played with the idea of screwing around with them but I honestly don’t want to do anything to encourage them.
So yeah, it’s a major annoyance and I wish I could find out who the guy was who did this (pretty sure it’s Matt in Texas) and strangle him.
