Keeping up with the Kardashian Kard investigation: E! stars disavow debit card

Posted on

Image Credit: Denise Truscello/WireImage.comThe State of Connecticut is investigating the prepaid debit card endorsed by the Kardashian sisters for its alleged “predatory fees,” according to The Hartford Courant. The state’s Attorney General Richard Blumenthal told the paper that users of the Kardashian Kard were charged with numerous and excessive fees not normally associated with legitimate debit cards. Though the sisters believe the card, which is issued by the University National Bank in Minnesota, has conformed to all laws and regulations, they have now withdrawn their endorsement of the card bearing their name due to the investigation. A statement from their lawyer reads, “The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults … Unfortunately, the negative spotlight turned on the Kardashians as a result of the Attorney General’s comments and actions threatens everything for which they have worked.”

I feel for all the people who carry the K-Kard and feel blindsided by the excessive charges. Normally, when I sign up for a financial card associated with reality TV stars, I expect it to be as pure and straightforward as the Bailey Savings & Loan. If you’re a fan — or a Kard holder — will the investigation affect your positive opinion of the Kardashians? Vote below:
