emails being sent in my name but not by me

Specs: Macintosh
About 50 emails have been sent to contacts today but not by me, they are sent to multiple accounts and the only reason I know is because I got one from me too. I recieved mailer demon messages saying my emails could not be sent. Although paypal and sage sent messages telling me they could not deal with my enquiry unless I logged on to the websites, so they must have been sent something also without me knowing.

Spammers often spoof your email address if they can get hold of it.

Do this:
Go into Google, type in your email address and see if it finds it.
If so, you'll continue to get spammed to death and can only cure it by changing your email address then never leaving it in open text on the internet.

In any event you need to run your virus checker for starters. You could also try scanning with MalwareBytes freebie, as this often picks up what other programs miss.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.
