I keep getting emails for someone with a similar email to mine. It's super annoying.

I've cancelled a few reservations lmao

Same. Cancelled hotel reservations on the day of check-in so they had to pay anyway. Redirected a FedEx package to an outlet 200 miles away.

And yet she keeps using my email address for all her receipts and loyalty programs. Maybe she'll learn one day.

Wow - that’s a genuinely awful thing to do. Someone accidentally used your email address for a period of time, and you cancelled their reservation the day of their stay? That’s just needlessly cruel.

You have limitless ways of reaching the people (including knowing the hotel they were staying at) - wouldn’t it have been less devastating to just leave a message at the hotel or something?

Please no need for being naive. I am in the same situation. Someone is using the same email address as mine when in reality their email address is 1 letter reducted version of mine. So either she writes the address wrong as "our" full name or others do that mistake I receive all her banking payment slips, professional emails etc.

I sent her an email explaining the situation and she mocked me and still continues to use my email address. NOW I am waiting for my day to come. They certainly don't deserve the considerate acts.

Have you ever had to give your email address over the phone? It may not be their fault, but the person putting in the email address. Especially if their are language differences. You’re just being shitty.

It does sound terrible I know, but this wasn't out of the blue. My address is in the format and not a difficult or particularly unusual combination of names, it's not easy to mess up. I snapped after years of getting signed up for things that she has obviously typed into a website herself. At one stage I was getting more mail for her than for me, and this is my main address that I've had for nearly 20 years. I've sent messages to her on various bits of social media begging her to be more careful and the only thing I got back once was a smirk emoji so...

I wanted to be mad, and say you were the one in the wrong. But you’ve changed my mind. That person is just being a turd.

Same. Someone with my name will be really pissed off when they find out that I got all 4 reminders to pay the balance on their wedding suits last summer. I often wonder if they got it sorted!

I've had a realtor send me a stack of closing docs, unencrypted with financials included. I emailed them to be more careful but no response.

Yeah. I get school transcripts and car stuff for someone with the same email as me except it has a period between the names. They're not typing the email in wrong. It's just a weird and terrible Gmail thing.

Yeah mine is first dot lastname@gmail. I get tons addressed to firstlastname

Gmail says I own both but somehow several people have variations on mine and I get their mail. Mskrs me wonder how much of my mail I'm missing.
