I want to poach customers from my competitor. Is it legal to email my competitor's customers, advertising my service as an alternative?
- I can obtain a list of my competitor's customers, through a 3rd party product review site. This site allows those customers to review the competitor.
- For each of those customers, I can obtain their publicly listed contact email address from their business website.
- I would then email each of them, with a promotion email. Prompting them to consider me as an alternative.
Is this legal? Also, is it legal to refer to my competitor in the email in any way?
