It's not uncommon for email addresses to be harvested by spammers for use as
(forged) credentials. With web crawlers, malware that reads address books and
inboxes, wifi sniffers in public access points, and similar threats, any email
address that is actually used is likely to be copied and misused. Such casual
identity theft is simply part of being online.  --Don
