While most of your reply is about your concern, it seems I didn't convey that SPOOFING is how its done. It also seems you haven't done the Google and read about this term.
I wish I had a cure for this, but until internet email is revamped, spoofing will continue.
In closing, the person is not "using" your email address, but virus/worm/other is commonly spread this way with a spoofed address or sending you a "bounced", "returned" email and they hope you open it.
A spammer will use any return address they wish...
