Kim And ‘Em Get Their Name Off That Shady Fraud-y Kardashian Kard They Were All Proud Of

Kim Khloe Kourtney Kardashian Kard

The idea of robbing low-credit-score-carrying young people in the hood was all good to the Kardashians just two weeks ago.

But now that their super-shady Kardashian Kard is under fire for it’s exorbitant fee schedule, Kim and ’em have decided they want out.

The Kardashian sisters are seeking to cut ties with a venture that sold prepaid debit cards under their name after coming under attack for the card’s high fees.

The card, which launched three weeks ago, was aimed at young adults, the same group that watches the sisters’ hit cable TV show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

An attorney for the sisters sent a letter Monday to parties affiliated with the card asking them to immediately stop using the names and images of the three sisters.

The notice came after Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal warned on Friday that he would investigate the program to see if it violated state laws to protect consumers. He called the card’s fees “predatory.”

The Kardashians – Kim, Khloe and Kourtney – launched the card on Nov. 10, with much fanfare. The “Kardashian Kard” includes a picture of the trio on one side, and the sisters said at the time of the launch they were “excited … to create their very own financial product.”

But almost immediately the Kardashians came under attack by consumer advocates for attaching their names to a card with fees that far surpassed other prepaid debit cards on the market.

“The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults,” says the letter from Dennis Roach, legal counsel of Dash Dolls LLC, which represents the three sisters. “Unfortunately, the negative spotlight turned on the Kardashians.”

In a statement late Monday, card-issuer University National Bank confirmed that it had ended the sale of the Kardashian cards. Consumers who bought the card will get their money back, including fees that they might have incurred, it said.

MasterCard, which was a partner in the card, said in a statement that “the decision to end the program affirms that consumers did not find value in this particular prepaid offering.”

Representatives from Mobe Inc. and Mobile Resources Card, also affiliated with the card, did not return requests for comment.

Consumers Union, the publisher of Consumer Reports, had come out strongly in recent weeks against the Kardashians for using their celebrity status to hawk a prepaid card loaded with fees.

“Any other celebrity or business that is thinking of associating its name with a prepaid card should take a close look at the fees and protections, and say ‘no thanks’ unless the fees are low and the missing consumer protections are added,” Gail Hillebrand, director of Consumers Union’s Defend Your Dollars campaign, said after hearing Monday’s news.

Yeah, Kris Jenner! We expected way more of you!
