    It's another one of "those"...

    In just 30 days since its launch, upwards of 200 dealerships from across the nation have signed with Honcker (http://www.honcker.com) to drive their leasing sales. Here’s why Honcker is the most disruptive automotive app to launch in 2016. Honcker gives full control of everything to the dealer so a dealer acquires customers on their terms. It is an extension of the dealer rooftop into the digital world.
    • Honcker is the only place on the Internet or App where you can actually do an automotive LEASE transaction and have the car delivered.
    • Honcker is the only place you can get an actual price based on who you are without effecting your credit score.
    • All in real time, all from dealers in your area.
    • It looks exactly like a list of airline flights on Expedia.
    The auto industry is known for its secrecy. Until Honcker, consumers were restricted from accessing realtime inventories or actual pricing. You had to go to each dealership, negotiate a price and then compare it. Honcker is the first auto-leasing app that offers full transparency, convenience, and is providing consumers with dramatic savings.

    "Honcker has made car leasing so simple its just unbelievable! In three swipes you pick a car, a price and boom! You're done."


    Wonder how it's going for HONKER?

    Question: Who in their right mind, would share their Drivers License and Credit Card info with a website or app that doesn't list a business address in the "About Us" section?

    The first step in selling or leasing a car is establishing credibility -- and it's doubly important if you're going to attempt to do it online.

    Seems like a great idea (there have to be similar models out there), until you get to the nitty-gritty. Per @Ed Brooks@Ed Brooks' comment.

    Thousands of people.
    Over the past few years we've seen a 300-500% increase in the number of people who fill out phishing forms.
    People trust "the internet" in a way they really should not.
