    I think that it is not illegal, and maybeif it is, it is not a big crime

    It's not illegal if they don't catch you.

    This is the worst motto I've ever heard. This basically makes every crime justifiable. Jack the Ripper basically did nothing wrong, because he was never caught.

    LOL are you for real, you make comparison between mail spam and serial killer? :D

    My point was, if he think that 5k mails is massive scale that isn't big deal and he won't harm anyone.

    I don't really know about legal stuff

    But all legitimate CPA networks I know or I used (big and popular ones) do not allow E-mail marketing and would ban you as soon as they discover it

    Yes, it is clearly stated by the can-spam act of 2003 that, that is illegal. People have to opt in to your emails to receive solicitation. There is a HUGE amount of other nuances you might want to read as well.

    Good luck out there!
