I received the attached spam on an e-mail account that I only use to use for my Anandtech account (identified as "Anand" in the e-mail header). The "receipt" was in the form of a PDF (I converted it to a jpg so I could attach it).

Thank you.

Two or three most likely possibilities.

1) Someone mistyped their email address so it was yours.

2) Someone deliberately gave a false, what they assumed was fictitious email addy. I confess to doing this all the time when someone wants my email addess but I don't want email from them, if it's a forced form fill-in online, though I try to make it gibberish that is unlikely to be a real addy.

3) Spam sent to randomly generated email addresses
