Tactical baseball bat at close range? :)

I and a number of coworkers are getting similar bounces, except the 
spammers are actually using our full email addresses as the from address.  
The first few cases of this, I wrote off to things like KLEZ...but 
recently I've gotten actual spam bounces where my work email address was 
the original from.

I suppose it could possibly still be something like KLEZ and it's grabbing 
a spam from their inbox and sending that out with a forged from.
