I’ve recently started working with a client. He want’s to scrape emails from instagram and other place from the internet and cold email for his shopify store. Is this legal?

also I’m trying to tell him that it can seriously affect his deliverability as people will be reporting as spam.

Would I be correct in saying this?

Yes, I agree with you. This is not a good way to go for many reasons, mostly because: 

  1. It’s illegal.
  2. The emails will end up in spam → this will hurt your client’s deliverability and reputation.
  3. Even if you consider doing so, it will not convert. The people have no intention of buying.
