1983: TCC Employees purchased Trend Credit Corp. from The Trend Group Ltd.
1988: TCC developed two divisions, Accounts Receivable Management Associates (ARMA) and the United States Association for International Claimants (AIC).
ARMA offered alternative solutions for businesses to expedite recovery of their accounts receivables while weeding out problem accounts. ARMA improved applications, contracts and personal guarantees for its clients to secure their clients' chances of collection and to reduce future losses.

1994: The New York Daily News reported that Democratic Party leader Claude Wathey and three other officials were sentenced to 18 months in jail for committing forgery and perjury, according to The Associated Press (7/24/1994).

1996: George R. Stephanopoulos, Senior Advisor to the President for Policy and Strategy and now ABC News Anchor, forwarded TCC/ARMA’s proposal “Putting U.S. Citizens First with Foreign Policy” to the Department of State and the National Security Council.
