A few bad apples spoil the cart.
Why are you ok with a disgusting shortcut when a much simpler method has existed for ages? Demand two months rent in advance (three at most), which count as payment for the first month and a reserve if you don't pay subsequent months. If by the agreed date on any subsequent month you don't pay the rent, the landlord has more than enough time to evict you and not lose money. The eviction lawsuit should be modernised in the countries where it still hasn't in order to speed up the process so that this works. You don't take shortcuts, you just need to make the system better, not go backwards.
This whole low cost mentality where people will let go of anything in order to get a plate of soup is going to cost society dearly in the end. And as always, it's the poorer people that will suffer the most. Rich people will buy the house and keep their privacy.
And for jobs (the other project this startup has) there are letters of recommendation from your previous employer. First time employees will always be a risk that is only mitigated by your resume to a certain point (what school / college you attended, if you were a good student, etc), it's not by giving away everybody's privacy that you solve that problem, it's just something that you have to account for as an inherent risk in life.Edited by tpi2007 - 6/11/16 at 1:10pm
