    Emails received but not my address

    Please help! For the last 3 weeks I have been receiving sexually explicit
    emails from different people but they all ask that I reply to
    geocities.com/their ID.They are getting more frequent but the funny thing
    is,they don't have my address in the to box.They are all to different
    addresses but have the same IP that I have. They started out with one every
    day and now there are 15-20. I have never been to this sight. I have been
    adding them to my block sender and sender domain lists but they just use
    different addresses each time. Call me dumb or boring but I only have 3
    sights I visit and they definitely don't have anything to do with sexual
    content. Is there a way to stop these emails and why do I get them if they do
    not have my address in the" to" box? Thank you

    Every time you get one of those, forward it to abuse@xxxxxx
    with a request that they take appropriate disciplinary action against
    their member.

    Emails are not necessarily delivered by what you see in the 'To' field
    of a received email. If someone sends you an email via BCC addressing,
    your email address will not be in the 'To' field.
