Comments:If you wouldn't do it for brick and mortar store customers walking in the door, you should certainly not restrict the network marketting/direct selling industry. I get a smiley face when I walk into Walmart, not an inch thick list of allegations/lawsuits/arbitrations against them. And if you told me I had to wait 7 days at the cash register to buy the toilet paper I had just picked up off the shelf, purturbed would be the least of my emotions. Appreciate your attempt to combat fraud, in fact, I was frauded $4400 several years ago on a web-based scheme (which by the way, the FBI Corporate Fraud dept did nothing about to enforce), but the business system I am currently engaged with in Quixtar has never let me down. Don't let one apple spoil the whole bunch. I have found that even if people have all the negative info about a multi-level web-based direct selling system, they have usually already made their decision and the FTC will not have any affect on their action even after a 7-day wait. How has the 3-day wait on gun purchases or the 3-day marriage license wait paid off? In the long term and in my opinion, it will hurt the economy and this new wave of business ownership, not help legitimate business systems like Quixtar. Thanks and God bless, Brandon P.S. How much tax payer money would it cost to enforce this?
