Any data on repayment history for your typical, run-of-the-mill gangboss?

More than probable, the borrower listed gangboss instead of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevedore.  Since the location is Washington, the borrower is probably a dock worker, longshoreman, etc.

Yep, this is a very logical explanation.  But not near as much fun as what my imagination can conjure.  ::)

Nah, more likely a boss/team leader of a "Gang" which is a work crew of stevedores

I used to be one of those silly investors that actually used the comments fields back in the day and I heard some pretty crazy stuff in there about jobs. On one loan the guy told me where his new gas station was going to be and LC didn't like that so the loan was shortly yanked.  I never confirmed it, but one of my buddies said someone listed therapeutic female artist as their job title and had that the loan was for upgrades so they would make more income... Nevertheless it was a good story and fully plausible. Still miss those P2P lending days.

Core come on, no one would have known that, why'd you go and ruin that, or is trolling not allowed?
