Hey, You Have the Wrong Guy

Ever gotten an E-mail like this?

Hi Stacy,

Can you forward this to Dr. Street?

Thank you and Happy Holidays.
DR

The website is:
http://palms.pacificpremedia.com/oakley

the username is: xxxx
the password is: xxxx

The problem stems from the fact that I've had the same hotmail account for over 13 years. I was there first.

However, there's now someone with a similar name who works as an eye doctor. And I am constantly being barraged with the man's personal correspondence. I've been sent pornographic pictures from his "frat buddies." I've been sent his personal mortgage information. I've been sent marketing inquiries, like the one above. I've politely ignored them or declined or informed the person in question, but it has really gotten annoying lately.

My response to the above:

I am not Doctor Street. You have the wrong e-mail address for Doctor Street.

What professional in the world of marketing, eye care, and the like uses an e-mail address of "cantseeshit1" for corresponding with an eye doctor?

Don't bother answering.

I guess that's a wild world, that whole vision and marketing thing.
