Comments:I am a former Quality Control Manager and have been involved with Alticor/Quixtar for over 20 years. Numerous professionals (doctors, judges, business executives, and the former Economic Development Director for the State of Texas) have been part of my business over the years. Busy professionals do not need 7 days to think about a $100 business decision and such a requirement would be unnecessary and burdensome since Quixtar has a money back guarantee for all. More importantly, I know of no professional that wants his confidential contact and membership informantion sent to others by FTC mandate. The due diligence that is required here has never been a problem in our business or any other business where the cost of entry is very low and the company guarantees a refund for 12 months. These regulatory burdens should be aimed at scams and fraudulent practices, and should never encourage the listing of frivilous or meritless litigation. Please do not hamstring our ability to grow by lumping the good with the bad or creating an appearance of impropriety by equating the risks in our business with franchise or investment scams that can cost their victims tens of thousands of dollars. Thanks for yor attention to my concerns.
