Comments:I am writing to express my concern about the proposed rule by the FTC that would affect our Quixtar business opportunity. I agree that consumers should receive all the information they need to make a good decision about participating in business opportunities like Quixtar. But I do not agree with the proposal to require a list of references for the prospect, nor do I see a need for the seven-day waiting period before being able to register. I wouldn't want my name, address and phone number handed out to strangers. And I am confident that Quixtar would refund money if a prospect were dissatisfied with the opportunity he had registered into. Quixtar is a "people" business that thrives where honest, caring business partners are involved. On the rare occasions when dishonest people enter the business with the sole purpose of deceiving their prospects, I trust that Quixtar will be quick to intercede in an effort to protect the consumer. I applaud the FTC's interest in preventing deception in direct selling opportunities, but please don't penalize the honest entrepreneurs in great opportunities like the Quixtar opportunity in the process. Thank you!
