From address spoofing my domain

A user has been getting a lot of spam with headers that look something like this:
From: Bosley at covisp.net, Hair at covisp.net, Restoration at covisp.net
From: National at covisp.net, Solar at covisp.net, Network at covisp.net,
From: ObamacareInformation at covisp.net
From: OmegaK at covisp.net, Heart at covisp.net, Attack at covisp.net,
From: Penny at covisp.net, Auction at covisp.net, Deals at covisp.net
From: Perfect at covisp.net, Water at covisp.net, Purifier at covisp.net
From: Proactiv at covisp.net, Special at covisp.net, Offer at covisp.net
From: PCNN at covisp.net, Breaking at covisp.net, Now at covisp.net
I’m puzzle and wondering if there is something odd in my configuration that may be causing the From to appear this way or if it’s just some new spammer tactic.
I do have:
/covisp\.net$/ REJECT helo Don't spoof my hostname
In postfix’s helo_header_checks, but these are not the helo or From_ addresses.
Is it possible that amavisd is hitting an invalid From header like “Bosely Hair Restoration” and adding a “@covisp.net” to each word?
Here is the most recent one, lightly munged:

I always take life with a grain of salt, plus a slice of lime and a
shot of tequila.
