Can anyone explain in lay terms why / how I receive email (spam) when the address on them bears no resemblance to my own.

Mail can be sent to you as

1 - your address in the "to" field

2 - your address in the "cc" field - carbon copy to you

3 - your address in the "bcc" field - blind carbon copy - one person is in the "to" field but is "blind" as to who is in the "bcc" fields.
