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"
