Someone else's mail coming to my address

For several years I have held a Gmail account in the format '[email protected]' Recently, I have received a few emails in the format 'forename.[email protected]' in confirmation of signing up to various mundane online services. I have not signed up to them.

There don't appear to be any ulterior motives - no dodgy links, requests for money, threats or inducements. They just look like genuine emails coming to a mistaken address and belonging to someone with the same name as me.

Should I be worried? Is there anything I should do about it?
