Someone is using my old ntlworld email address

Recently I have been receiving email to my email address but the name and address on the correspondence is someone else's name and address.  The email address in question is an old ntlworld email address but all linked to my main virgin media account.

How can this happen and how do I stop it?

no one can use a email address that has been used in the past.

But anyone can enter the wrong email address when signing up to something.

Its very unlikely anyone has access to your old email they have just entered an email address wrong

True, that could happen but the names are completely different entirely … no where near a mistake. The emails recv. are confirmation emails about goods being delivered which seems a bit 'scammy'.

Likely cause is the miscreants have BCC the ntlworld.com email address.
