Comments:We are Scott & Heather DeVore of Fairfax, VA. We are Platinum IBOs in the Quixtar business opportunity; business owners since July 2003. We are writing in regard to the proposed rules for prospecting potential business owners. We are opposed to the seven (7) days for prospects to wait to get signed up once they are introduced to the business model. We do not believe that that much time is needed to evaluate this business for this small of an investment, around $150, especially with a 6-month money back guarantee policy by Quixtar. We let our prospects know that there is no risk when getting started. We are also opposed to the 10 contact rule that prospects will be given to ask questions on their experience with the company. This is not fair to business owners as I’m sure most would not like random people calling them like a solicitor. Also, people build this business for many different reasons, in which feedback of another person’s goals and expectations may not be the same as the prospect who is calling them, which could deter them from going into business for themselves. We applaud your goals to detect fraudulent businesses, but this would really hamper my independent business with such a great company like Quixtar, which stands for the utmost of integrity.
