    Hi,
    I've seen in many places you can buy millions of emails for next to nothing, has anyone had any experience doing this? If so any success?
    I've always looked at it as a bad idea as none of the emails were personally collect by me and none of them are targeted at all. So its considered major spamming.

    Should i stay clear?
    Thanks

    Yes stay clear. Try to build a list with Solo ads and stuff. Get Aweber and build squeeze pages. Spamming will get you trouble with the law and maybe even jail time. There is 1000s of better methods out there

    Not only will it get you in trouble but it almost surely won't be profitable. Stay away.
