Comments:I would like to voice my support for these regulations. Any efforts to control the rampant fraud and deception in the MLM industry would be most welcome. Most of the comments you receive will, undoubtably, be from MLM organizations opposed to any control. They will have no trouble whipping their membership into an anti-government frenzy. After all, if you believe a pill in your fuel tank will improve your gas mileage 25%, you won't have any trouble believing there's a government conspiracy to keep you from getting rich. I have never been directly involved in an MLM, but I have seen the financial and emotional damage they can cause. I applaud your efforts to combat these unethical business practices. Thank you.
