    It's illegal in most countries but the consequences will vary depending on where you live. In some places, you will get a fine, others there is prison time involved. And, yes I have seen big news stories of people going to jail for spamming millions with unwanted emails.

    Keep it simple my friend.

    Send messages only to people leaving their e-mail to your webform.

    They ask for you to send messages and you can send as much as you want.

    Leave the others....

    I agree, scrapers are not good to use, I used to sell those systems but its a new era of marketing that are a lot more productive then using them. If I had lists, I would not risk sending from my domain in case it is blacklisted. Be careful about that because if you do get legit followers via webform, your domain could be blacklisted and emails always sent to spam.

    I would be interested in knowing your objective in extracting an email scraper. Are you attempting to sell a product? Or maybe building a list?

    Your list of email addresses will work better for you when you build a targeted list made up of people who are seeking what you have to offer.

    If possible - provide a few more details, so we can help.

    but I wouldn't bother posting there to ask if it is legal to spam with emails acquired through scrapers.
