GetHuman-sdalton's customer service issue with Gmail from June 2018

Help with my Gmail issue
The issue in GetHuman-sdalton's own words
I received * emails today at my email address: *****@***.com that were addressed to a Shari -- (not me but staff member at a Seventh Day Adventist children's camp who apparently uses the same email address that I use. Don't you have some checks to prevent this from happening? I have had my email address for many years. How did gmail allow another to have the same email address? I do not want to change my longterm gmail address. Can you fix this problem?
GetHuman-sdalton did not yet indicate what Gmail should do to make this right.
I have an issue with Gmail too
How GetHuman-sdalton fixed the problem
The emails I received referenced a person named Shari. I emailed her using my (the same one she was giving out) email address telling her of the problem and today the problem so far has disappeared.
