Comments:It is our view and belief that presented in its present form it would destroy any future business as an Independent Distributor for the company we represent and would irreparably damage the business we have already worked so hard to build and operate, including literally, thousands of other distributors in our company and in our industry. Although well intentioned, the proposed rule would unfairly burden the business owner, the company, and the industry in an unnecessary, significant mountain of procedures that will do nothing to protect the public from the unscrupulous scoundrels who pray on the unsuspecting. The rule will not help people properly evaluate whether a certain product or business is right for them. Daily we are exposed to many scams on the Internet, over the phone, in the mail, and we have been approached by many crooks because of our success. The proposed rule will do nothing to stop these unscrupulous crooks. They hurt our business! This rule will not stop Crooks. They violate the current rule all the time. But we are good American citizens and the proposed rule will do great harm to our family. Thank you and please help us and others like us to retain the right to operate a successful home business where the company already has procedures in place to protect anyone from loss of money and/or time and credibility. The company we represent is an excellent company, please do not lump great companies like ours, which has a 100% money back 30 day guarantee, into the same barrel as those who currently take advantage of others every day with no repercussions. If you wish to go after those who are damaging or hurting innocent people, we will salute you, but for heaven’s sake, let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water. Use the existing tools and laws you already have at your disposal to prosecute the wrong doers. Please insure that any proposed rule will not be detrimental to the incredible volume of sales created by the Direct Selling Industry, a Multi Billion Dollar industry today. To do so would hurt the United States economy tremendously. It is suggested that you or your representative visit the top companies in the industry such as Avon Products, Alticor, Mary Kay, Herbalife and XanGo to see what kind of companies they are and what procedures, policies, and rules they have in place to protect not only the company, but the industry, the consumer, and the distributor. These companies and others have a vested interest to see that all succeed and prosper. They have no interest in putting the business owner in peril with such a stringent rule as Rule R511993. Please go after the bad guys, not the good guys.
