Comments:Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to express some of my concerns regarding the proposed Business Opportunity Rule. First of all, I commend the FTC its effort to combat fraud and prohibit unfair and deceptive practices according to Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act. However, as a Quixtar IBO for over five years, I am particularly concerned about the proposed requirement of 10 references, litigation list and financial substantiation. Whenever we share the Quixtar opportunity we follow a step-by-step process which includes a packet of information, the opportunity to meet other IBOs and a time to have questions answered. I hope the final proposal of the Business Opportunity Rule will combat fraud and not penalize Quixtar IBOs who adequately and fairly inform people when sharing the business opportunity.
