Comments:My husband and I began our Quixtar Business in 2001and have found the people involved in the company to be honest and sincere. We understand the concerns of the FTC and the attempts to protect citizens from fraudulent practices. The Quixtar Corporation has its own built in safe guards for new business owners. These include the very low start up cost of $42 with an optional product starter kit for approximately $60; NO finders fees for registering new business owners and NO inventory loading or mandatory product purchase that must then be resold. The Quixtar Corporation also requires all business owners to agree to a code of conduct which includes accurate representation of the business opportunity. Providing listing of litigation does not allow a potential bussiness owner to determine legitimate complaints from those of a disgruntled person. In order to be effective it would require an unreasonable amount of investigation on the part of the prospect. Providing a list of 10 references can be seen as infringing on privacy because names and contact information will be distributed. Perhaps the FTC can establish a list of legitimate businesses in an attempt to safe guard citizens from bogus corporations.
