ONLINE-ADS>> Sue for Damages?

I haven't posted anything for a while, because I have been involved in a
dilemma. So I will put the question to all of you. Should (or can) I sue?

Here's the scenario.

I paid $500 for 50,000 names (good and responsive names I was assured) to
be emailed by a company who shall remain nameless. I will tell though if
you want. Needless to say these names were not what I was told. In return
my company received almost 100 calls from people yelling and screaming
about the email they received. And hundreds more of emails saying the same.

I sent email to the company telling them what was going on. "You told me
these were names of people that joined your list. Why am I getting this
type of response?" I heard no reply. In fact, several emails I sent after
this bounced back.

What did they do? They sent out another 100,000 of the email WITHOUT my

The Question==>
Can I sue for damages from the business I lost and for the damage this 2nd
mailing caused to Pride Vitamins, my business? Also, Pride Vitamins is a
registered trademark. Is what they did trademark infringement? They did not
have any permission to use Pride Vitamins in their second damaging email

Any comments would be most appreciated. I would like to hear what people
have to say before I go to our lawyers and have them do something.
