Possibly it might exist in a free market as a method to cheat on contractual arrangements without being traced. IE two members of a would be cartel, who agreed to monitor each other in their monopolistic ambitions to keep the other from cheating. Which would be a good thing, cartel 'cheaters' are central to free markets, so anything that helps that is good.
But yeah I don't think it would be greatly used.
