I'm still not that Gary, says US email mixup bloke who hasn't even seen Dartford Crossing

I have had people using my gmail address to sign up to Chaturbate alerts, book a weekend away in Stirling (got part of his wife's CC data then), someone opened up an investment account with Capital One in the US and someone who used a hotel on booking.com. The hotel didn't seem that bothered until I pointed out that I could cancel the booking by hitting a link in the email, booking was non-refundable, and it wouldn't be me going getting shit when they tried to check in.
