    Hey guys,

    I see a few people talk about bulk mailing email lists of 100k + and they get these lists of paid sources or scrape them..isnt that illegal? Cant you go to jail or get sued by doing so?

    What are you thoughts on this?

    Spammers try not to leave details as to who they really are.

    No it is not (At Least In The US-Some Countries It May Be So Check Your Own Countries Laws). Here is a good article on this topic (Please note I am associated with this website posting it here as article and video directly deal with this topic):

    You can always get away with it. But it is illegal though

    It's illegal in some places, legal in others. Judging by the amount of spam I get daily on several inboxes, spammers are doing fine.
