This is called a "Joe Job". Something like this might work, perhaps:

    * TO_joejob at yourdomain\.com

If your primary address is being joejobbed, that's really sad (I hope
it's not). Otherwise, it's easier to sort out your legitimate bounces
(which you want to see) from the joejob bounces (which you don't have
to see immediately).
