Other People's e-mail

Yesterday I received an email titled "Online Concealed Carry' ADDRESSED TO: (deleted)@comcast.net.  Why am I receiving e-mail addressed to another person?  I have received other e-mail messages similarly NOT addressed to me, typically advertising items in which I have no interest and, too often, repeat messages not addressed to me. 

 

This annoyance may be peculiar to Comcast in which case I can change service providers.

Spammers can make an email appear to be for someone else. If you view the source, you'd probably see your email address in there.
