Comments:Making a direct sales company be accountable is fine but do it at the company level not at the end user. Companies can make the information available to the people that want to investigate further. To impose a waiting period in the direct sales industry is only hurting people like the single mom that has been able to spend more time with her children because she found the American Dream of not working the conventional 9 - 5 or the dad that use to work so many hours to make ends meet and can now have more freedom to be with his family or the family that can now afford all the things they need and want because they found an opportunity that pays more than any job they could have worked. Most direct sales companies (business opportunity) I have looked at are more than willing to take back their kit and refund your money or even buy back inventory you may have purchased if you no longer want to work for them. So they are not a threat to people. If you want to regulate sales companies start with Car Dealerships. Let the consumer be more aware of how that racket works. I'd love to read up on that scam. Companies that have been around for years and have helped so many people should be grandfathered in and exempt.
