Larry Chiang, President and CEO


I'll shoot you w/a nerf gun if you don't manage your credit.

11:11 is my goal of getting duck9 consumers lots of 1s.

24 1's in a row equals a 750 FICO.

A "one" is an on-time payment in credit reporting code.

A '9'=charged off bad-debt. You wanna duck 9s.

Duck9 = Deep Underground Credit Knowledge (Duck 9's on your credit report. 9's are charge-offs)

"Making sure college credit virgins get deflowered right since 2004"

"Larry Chiang is an expert at the dark art of FICO score preparation"

NYFW is in Chaos

February 7, 2016

By Larry Chiang New York Fashion Week used to be tightly knit at Bryant Park. Then, Mercedes Benz anchored it at Lincoln Center.  Now after IMG sold, there’s chaos. Shows are everywhere. Scattered.  Fashion Night Out was better organized.  Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. […]
