Kindle Imposter Needs To Be Shut Down!

Starting around 11am Dec 25 I started getting email from Amazon for a person named Tammy XXXX who shares my last name. My assumption is she used my email address accidentally to register her kindle. What do I do about this?

The emails started off with "Welcome to Your New kindle" and "Welcome to Amazon Prime" and then continued to be receipts for any games or books she downloaded. I get about 3 of them a day now. I called Amazon yesterday to explain the situation and their first response was 'you should call google cuz someone must have the same email as you" !!!!!!! I think not. I asked that they notify this person that they are using my personal email address and to lock the account until it's resolved but I'm still getting emails. What other avenues of recourse do I have to make this person understand they are using my personal email address and it needs to stop?
