Can you get in trouble for spamming millions of accounts with advertisement every day?
Not illegal, but you'll probably get banned or spam listed
You'll be penalized someday or two.
I am using proxies so I don't get penalized, I think it might go under spam, isn't that illegal?
no it's not. Some people who you send ads might say that in order to scare you.
You will get public recognition for spamming. https://www.spamhaus.org/statistics/spammers/
And if you don't cover your track well, depending upon where you reside, you can be fine heavily or jailed. Spamming is totally illegal.
When should I start being worried? I'm not on those guys level. I send about 1 million per day with my own accounts. I don't hack anything (botnets) nor rip anyone off money. It's just simple advertisments from my own accounts.
THE word SPAMMING + MILLIONS = TROUBLE Sometimes!
What if i'm from 3rd country ?
I don't think its illegal, like you are describing it, but you can get trouble with your aff network.
Most affiliate networks don't want their members to spam and its against their TOS,
you could lose all your income because of this. Especially when your are sending millions
of spam messages. Someone could contact your aff network and tell them about.
but spam could get illegal, for example in my country cold calls are illegal
and you can get in trouble for doing it.
I see. I do never send the same message twice to a person. Once they've seen my advertisment they will never see it again. Thanks for your reply.
The chance of you getting into trouble is so small that i feel you have a bigger chance of getting hit by lightning. This all can change ofc depending on the spam volume but as long as you stick to using proxies etc its ok.
What can get you into trouble tho then is is with the advertiser who's ads you are spamming. If they dont allow spamming then (which they shouldnt unless they dont care) then you can get burnt when they catch you. (even if your AM says its ok). Depending on scale could mean they freeze your earnings and terminate your account. Dont see much more happening unless you send millions of email or are unfortunate enough to send those emails to people who are employed in some kind of anti-spam/cybercrime etc division.
