The Wrong KMiller

with one comment

I love this blog, about a guy who has kmiller@gmail.com and gets lots of misdirected email.  For a long time, I had a an email that looked like this: myname@comcast.net and someone else had myname1@comcast.net.  I got his email all the time, which I would happily deal with as I felt a kinship with this mystery person who shared the same name as me.  At firstl, I would send a polite reply and refer them on to his address.  Over time, I started to only reply to important looking emails and then, after a while longer, I got sick of doing this and just deleted them as they arrived, with two notable exceptions.

Other Scott was some kind of counselor and I got sent someone’s complete case file from a psychiatrist.  I wrote her back to let her know it had been sent to the wrong address, expecting her to point out that I had received private data by mistake and that I should delete it.  Instead, the totality of her reply was: “Whoops”.

The Comcast address was a spam magnet, so I ignored any porn-related email that came my way in droves.  But then I got an email from the man himself, the other Scott.  He had subscribed to a porn site and had given them my email by mistake.  He wrote me to ask if I could dig through my inbox and see if that had sent his login and password to my address.  Sure enough, I had a brand new login and password to some unknown porn site and forwarded them on him.  The other Scott never even thanked me.
