Not sure if Google will just brush it away or take it seriously:

1. For 2 different google e-mail accounts user.name[put at-character here]gmail.com and username9[put at-character here]gmail.com (which are not at all associated by any manner), all mails addressed to username9[put at-character here]gmail.com pop up in the user.name[put at-character here]gmail.com account as well.
  
2. Can you believe that my google mail id gets associated as secondary address with 12 other google accounts without my knowlwdge?

One account automatically forwards all incoming mails to the other one, due to a filter?
