Comments:Dear Sirs: I appreciate the FTC's consumer protection priorities but I am also concerned for its impact on legitimate direct selling companies. I do understand that there are fraudulent groups in business but it is my feeling that those who wish to steal their income through illegal activities will ot be deterred by the law. I am reminded of the adage that the law is for the lawless" My family was hit hard financially after 9/11 due to the direct impact on the airlines. I began my Vemma business shortly thereafter to attempt to supplement our income and to help repair assaults on our pension and retirement income. I am also of the opinion that the 7 day wating period that the FCC is proposing may cast doubt on the consumer who has become accustomed to receiving product within days of a couple of days from the time of sale. In addition, the record keeping involved will be prohibitive and cause unnessary delays for the consumer. Most consumers are accustomed to a 3 day cooling off period. One reason I was able to become involved with Veema is because I only had to be receiving 1 vit/mineral order and agree to a 1/per year training/information kit at a cost of $14.95. I have never known of a company for which the initialn investment was so cost effective, reasonable, affordable and non-threatening. Additionally, I wish to emphasize that when reporting about litigation, the law cases won and lost should be reported separately, thereby giving credit to those who do business lawfully. Finally, I do not wish that Vemma/New Vision release my personal information to put the corporation in a potential position for liability for ID theft.
