If someone [I believe an actual person, rather than a spammer, apparently a child] has signed up for an online social networking account and mistyped their email address, so that I am recieving emails for it, what can I do about this to tell them please not to, while still staying on the right side of ethics and law?

On a technical level, I could probably use the reset password link to take over the account, but I'd have grave doubts about doing that and I have no idea what their actual email address is to change to it, so I'm not sure whether that would be any use anyhow.
