Comments:Dear Federal Trade Commision Members, I would like to thank the FTC and its members for their GREAT intention to protect the average consumer from illegal acts. However I'm writing to ask you to reconsider some of the requirements you are proposing to regulate the direct sales industry. I am a XanGo, LLC distributor and been proud to be involved in this business for one year. I began my XanGo business to allow me the financial independence that I have been searching for DECADES. The $500.00 proposal will definately put a huge damper on my business, it will limit a lot of people from getting started and fullfil their dreams of owning their own business. The waiting period proposal is a great inconvenience and will put a lot of doubts in the prospects minds. The release/sharing of personal information of refrences is without a doubt very uncomfortable. I would love to share the businss opportunity but not the personal information. I would not like my personal information to be traveling across the country and the world. Sharing personal information is very dangerous when you put in consideration identity theft and other possible crimes. I truly feel that the good and honest people like myself and others are being punished for the illegal and dishonest behavior of others. I'm just starting to feel my financial indepeddence that is long due. Now I'm feeling the uncertainty of the direction of my business when I learned about these new proposals. Please reconsider all of these proposals when you vote on these new regulations for the direct sale industry._________________________________________________________.
