Comments:In regards to the Business Opportunity Disclosures 16 CFR Part 437 I got involved with a legitimate business opportunity and enjoy marketing their product and making commissions in doing so. I do NOT wish to give out the names and phone numbers of the business partners I enroll if they do not wish me to. I also would not want the person that enrolled me to give out my name and number. Could I recommend a provision where the prospective buyer acknowledges that the person offering the business opportunity has declined to give them those names and numbers? That way, if it is a scam it will at least send up a red flag to the prospect. I operate my business with integrity and really have nothing to do with my upline (don't care for him personally) and would not want him giving out my name and number to his prospects. To tell a prospect that they HAVE to make their number available to any stranger the person that enrolled them decides to talk to sounds like it could be dangerous. And for the FTC to make this mandatory sounds like the start of a lawsuit when some girl gets enrolled in a legitimate business and the person that enrolled them gives out her name and number to some psycho who ends up using the contact information for disreputable means. If the FTC makes it madatory then they will need to take responsibility for the consequences that could arise from that mandatory measure.
