Comments:On your proposed ruling about the Business Opportunity Rule. There are several things I feel that would be in conflict with the growth of my business. If a contact would have to wait 7 days before they can start their buiness it would cause slow realization of any benefits. If I had to provide to much personal information to a strange, it may cause me great harm(identy theft) as well as client theft. Having to keep on hand a financial statement before a relationship is build, also to have ten names of references to give out when a person is invited to a meeting they have an opportunity to ask questions at that time. I would not like to provide my personal information. I know you are trying to prevent fraud but with that much info being provided to a stranger it could cause the business owner problems also. I am afilliated with Quixtar, they have also ways had a great reputation, the founders have always been above board. This should be a win - win situation for both the business owner and the client.
