Time for your daily dose of unhealthy paranoia....

Henry, although your examples are amusing, this can be a serious
problem!  Part of the problem comes in with the email address.
Anyone can peruse the Web and pick up email addresses.  A
government email address or one from a government contractor
can immediately set someone up as a security risk/target for
harrassment.  A collection agent for a credit card company would
be in the same position.  E.g.  Let's say Archduke Barttholomew is an
IRS auditor.  His email address would have some variation of
IRS.GOV or the like.  He is now a target for harrassment or threats.

As unpleasant as it sounds, this is the type of thing some people
have to deal with.
