    A little while back while in college I created a program that can farm lots of real peoples current valid email addresses. I found it on my HDD the other day and turned it on to see if it still works, I haven't turned it off since and I managed to collect close to 1 million unique email addresses.

    The question I am asking you guys is Can I make money off this list? Is there any other uses for it other then email spam?

    thanks.

    There is a black market for this sort of information. People who search for this type of information are generally hackers and/or scammers, but as long as you're getting something out of it, who cares!

    it's worthless...

    a ton of random emails.

    non targeted...no double optin....
    not only will it not convert well but it is illegal to send them anything.

    there are lists with way more than that floating around.. for free.


    They do not have much value.

    Not everybody uses or has bought Scrapebox though. Thats the beatuy of it. Scrapebox is a wonderful tool, and can scrape emails to sell off in addition to its many, many other features. Those who dont have these tools, or know how to use them properly, will often outsource the work to people like us with the told to do such.

    People buy Twitter accounts and such...So that would be like saying I have a twitter account adder, its worthless. That would be untrue, He could have thousands of accounts up for sale, or thousands of followers. Everything has its price, and someone out there may be willing to pick something like this up!

    Just my 2 cents though. Not trying to argue. Just letting others know!
