For now, yes.

However, in 2nd Run you'll find the DLOH's have "fixed" this.

Media Chick will be revised so a cap of either 1 or 3 nu yen per use
is put on her.

Also, the DLOH's have rescinded the rule on negative rep (put in
writing in 2nd Run) so there's no limit on the hole you can dig for
yourself. In your above example (saying there's no cap on M-Chick), if
you hit a Maglock you couldn't get past or you opponent hit you with a
WGC, you'd be sitting at -70 rep. Ick!
