    I used to do alot of these kinda fun and profitable things back in the day. I remember the good old days when CJ was so dumb...But gave up after bans, and entering the real world.

    However my day job isnt reaching it full potential. I do B2B sales, and just have been thinking I have at least 10k Business 2 Business leads, mostly in engineering, directory of engineering, Manager Quality Assurance/Quality Control, Vice President Research Development and Operations. Basicly all those kinda leads. I would say 50% are under 75 employee companies.

    Most of these have been called by me, or emailed or verified within 6 months or more. I call them on a regular basis for my real job. So I couldn't use my real name.

    What can I do with these things? I must be able to send them something, or make money with some greyish hat?

    Any ideas?

    If you plan to solicit to these leads then it isn't "greyish hat" it's "illegal hat" because your employer is responsible for the that information and I'd be willing to bet they don't approve of your intentions. They incurred expenses to acquire those leads and put faith in you, the employee, to utilize the information in the manner specified. Simply spamming these companies could severely damage the reputation of your employer if they're then suspected of selling information.

    My advice is to forget about it. You don't know what to do with the information and that's for the best. Perhaps you could have a chat with your boss about potential business opportunities involving these leads and find yourself on the receiving end of a raise instead of a lawsuit.

    I should say, that they are my leads. I wasn't given any tools for them, found them on my own. Granted I do call and verify them at work, but most I had before I took this job, and most were found in "off time". They have emails, phone numbers, company websites, all that kinda stuff. Basicly I just wouldnt want to do anything with them in my name since, I wouldnt want to confuse them when I call them about the legit job. You are right probably right, just honestly I feel like there is something I could do.

    But ya, I use all the lead sites, pay myself, or earned points and such to find them. I guess it was just a thought, wasnt sure if anyone had any ideas.
