I got this today and they had cloned my email address so it was as if it came to me from me!

I also got the same email today, but looking at the headers it looks like the email came from me....
How do they do it?
What do I need to do to protect myself?

I got this today and exactly the same as the previous comments - it appeared to have come from me!

Also got this today. A bit worrying, as others mentioned the email appeared to have been sent to me using my email address.

To all the above questions: there's nothing you can or need to do.

They already have your email address on a list, since they sent you the email. Any response whatsoever will confirm the email address is genuine, never mind if you get caught up in whatever scam they're pushing.

Possession of your email address doesn't mean they have compromised any accounts. I'm a sysadmin for a small company. We're receiving hundreds of these - to all the rubbish, invalid, mis-spelled addresses that always receive spam, as well as plenty of genuine addresses.

Just delete the email. If you use an email quarantine service, pass it on to them. Given the similarity of all the emails, any quarantine service worth it's salt should be easily able to spot these and filter them out.
