    My position gives me access to a large number of email addresses of active customers in a very popular sports based market. I don't want to go into much more detail here for obvious reasons, but I can't help feeling that this list has significant value to somebody. My question is, if I were to go to the trouble of collecting these addresses, what next? How would I go about selling such a list? Is there a market for such things?

    Indeed, and I appreciate that this might seem strange - I'm only really just getting started with trying to earn a little extra cash on the side, and reading the various money making options with interest. However, it seems I have a potentially valuable resource available to me, either as a source of leads for my own use or something that can be sold directly. If I need to hang around a little more and earn some trust, that's cool, but I thought I'd put it out there.

    Yes there is a market - your employers competitors - but you will loose your job if they find out what you have done.

    Depend on the amount of emails you have, and in what specific field of sport. This can worth a lot of money but again, it might not worth more than you think it should.

    Those who sent PM's, I have seen your messages, but can't reply until I've sent 15 messages, so I'll get a little more involved and reply later.
