Mistaken Identities

I've got an email address that's my firstname.lastname@gmail.com. Apparently, people with the same name as mine think that they have this address as well. I know that I've had at account created on an investment website, some high schooler in Canada used my email for his tennis team mailings, and I recently received condolences about a family member dying. I also see occasional password reset emails going to my other email account.

This issue is probably a bit exacerbated by the fact that gMail ignores periods in names.

Why do people have the delusion that they created this email account when they never did?
