    Depends where you are.

    But it is going to piss of your boss as spamming his customers through his mailing list is a bit cheeky and will see you in the dole q.

    This is not illegal in a criminal sense, but it is probably against your clothing employer's privacy policy. They could sue you if they found out.

    Problem is, thousands of employees do this every day....it's a privacy nightmare out there and there's nothing anyone can do.

    Even better OP, offer them some freebies from your boss's inventory. You don't even have to walk out with your stolen goods, just use his postage and packing. Result.

    I was always taught one simple thing - never shit on your own doorstep. It has done me well in life, I think you should live by the same rule as well OP :)

    Just friendly advice from a grumpy old git!

    YES it is illegal, I am from germany and you can be 100% sure that if you live in a first world country this will not be legal.

    If you try to steal the customers from your company, how could it be legal?

    Alone if you need yourself to ask this question if something is legal, you can be sure it will be not.

    You could always actually ask your boss if it was ok to market to their list.

    I wouldn't do it. It's not really illegal imo, but still you can get sued for it.
