GMail contact - misroute / security issue

I'm looking for a GMail contact.
My wife is receiving someone else's emails.
Specifically she is receiving emails for <first name><middle
initial><last name>@gmail.com (no dots) when her email address is really
<same first name>.<same middle initial>.<same last name>@gmail.com (dots).
I don't know if this is a "feature" or a "bug", but either way, it's
disquieting my wife. (Unhappy wife = unhappy life.)
I view this as both non-RFC compliant behavior -and- a potential
security risk. (Registering a GMail account as
<someone><famous>@gmail.com (no dot) to capture email for
<someone>.<famous>@gmail.com (dot) emails.)
Please reply or email me directly at gtaylor (at) tnetconsulting (dot)
net for additional details.
Thank you and have a nice day.
