Why am I receiving bounce messages when I did not send any emails?

To spoof emails, spammers extract email addresses and send emails from a manipulated identity. In order to not receive any bounce message. While sending spoofed emails, in order to avoid return responses and bounce messages, spammers will edit and manipulate the return-path address. If the return-path generated by the spammer matches with yours, then you will get bounce messages for the emails sent by the spammer.
