My domain registrar offers free privacy support on my IvP4 so that my 
personal info is not available. It's a nice third party receiver. 
Fortunately I've not had complaints. And yet, I live in fear that I 
might at some point because of the abuse of my domain and sometimes 
my own real address in spamming. And there's not a thing I can do 
about it, unless someone on here can advise what it might be. So far 
when I've asked, I've gotten no suggestions.

There was a time when it stopped last month, about the time that 
major spam operation was caught and taken off 'air'. But it seems to 
be ramping up again with the same spoofed usernames on my domain name.
