    Hey guys,

    I like to gather emails for inviting them to an email list. I know they are highly active but the problem is that I get their emails without their permission and wondered if I sold it as a BHW service, will it be illegal?

    I am not trying anything at all until I open a BHW service. I hope it doesn't look like a pre-sell.

    I am asking because some people said there is problem sending them emails to invite them to your email list before trying to sell them something. I didn't know where else to ask it.

    Some reading for you OP, also your location and the location of the people you are marketing to needs to be taken into consideration:

    I am not sure how this affects the selling of mailing lists but you should make yourself aware of all possible consequences.

    If its a big list, why don't you sell them a service or product and make money like that?

    It seemed like too much. Plus I have to show my address which I don't feel confortable doing. I just wanted to know if I can sell the emails to other people who are comfortable their information.
