Sometimes, when I go to App Store to download an app, my Apple ID becomes this random email address (it is always the same random email address). The email is "l.a.b.u.s.h.e.w@gmail.com". It turns back to my original ID after a few days, and it never gives me the option to change it.

What can I do and why is this happening?

Go to My - Apple ID and get into you account. Then go about changing the password and the reminders and maybe the username.

Also before you change anything sign out on your Mac any iCloud, iTunes stores.

To me sound as if you messed up something or a hacker got into your account!:(
