Earning From Bluesnarfing

Is it possible to earn money from bluesnarfing? Of course. I had my friend who deals with internet security asking me this over coffee the other day.
I recounted to him my experiences which I thought I would share here.
I started bluesnarfing for the thrill and fun of it. I had a policy that whatever I did should theoretically do no harm to the "victim" (I know some people would argue with me over this but this is another issue for another day).
This also means I keep out of trouble.

I've had more than 20 offers to help bluesnarf till now. One of the highest amount offered was a good 10k. To bluesnarf the palm device of the of their rival company. And for obvious reasons I rejected the offer.
Majority of them however, came from private incestigations, helping clients look for evidence of spousal betrayal. Again, non of which I took up because I never know what the full story is like.
I don't want to end up snooping on the good guy instead.

So thankfully or not I'm much poorer but also happier and safer without taking up these highly exciting offers. So can you legally earn from bluesnarfing? Of course, because that's part of my job now. I offer consultating services for internet and wireless security to companies. And you bet bluesnarfing is one of my favorite topics. I shall relate how I do bluesnarfing with lots of fun at these events.
