      I keep getting e-mails to "Melonie Fowler". She is totally unknown to me and is obviously using my address for competitions, tickets etc. What's that all about and should I be worried?

      Re: someone else is using my e-mail address

      Is your full correct email address shown in the mails you are recieving?
      I am getting loads of spam via my old BT email account now, but they are often addressed to a names very similar to mine but not actually my address they are usually similar with a few letters in my email adress wrong I dont know if this is some way the spammers have found of breaking through the email servers.
