You'll just have to deal with the bounces for now.   Several ways you 
can do that - via the VBounce plug-in in SpamAssassin or by rejecting 
all bounces to the domain temporarily if the problem is bad enough.

Going forward - setting up SPF on the domain in question (preferably 
with a -all hardfail) can dissuade spammers from spoofing your domains 
as it will affect their deliverability.  Same with DKIM and DMARC.
