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

KardashiansImage 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which is issued by the University National Bank in Minnesota, has conformed to all laws and regulations, they have now withdrawn their endorsement of the card bearing their name due to the investigation.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:

    Whoever signed up for this card deserved to be taken to the cleaners. I mean really, people, really?

      Did the public forget that Kim Kardashian is a skank!!?? She made a sex tape to get famous and be in the spot light. Then, once that is accomplished, she’ll act all nice and generous so people would think she is a good person, and that is EXACTLY what the public did. Face it, she only care about fame, truly sad that the public ate all that crap up. She contributes NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING to society. She can’t be a role model and will NEVER be.
      Also, this is a sickening scam to get rich off kids!! They are purely disgusting. The only reason they stopped it was because a god honest man decided to investigate this disgusting scam. The Kardashians knew that they would get rich off this because they exploit kids. How pathetic of them to try and make money off kids whose parents are most likely going through a difficult time financially.
      DISGUSTING!

        Agreed. I hate them. Now we have 2 more Kardashians coming up in their footsteps…

    • Lisa Simpson

      That was my first reaction. And my second.

  • etm

    I am embarrassed for anyone that would use this card.

  • jt

    Hey! Let’s keep talking about the Kardashians!!

    • druiz

      LOL

  • Kerri

    I do not, for 1 second, believe they and their reps didn’t know about those charges. Even the way that statement is worded is that they did know, but because the card is being investigated, they need to disassociate… NOT due to the charges, due to the investigation. They’re all frauds.

    • Leah

      I also love the fact that they’re trying to make it sound like it’s Blumenthal’s fault that this reflects poorly on the Kardashian name…

      • hc

        Right. It reads that they’re not terminating their relationship because of the banks predatory practices, but because they don’t like the negative attention. Can we finally banish them from popular culture?

  • Sarah

    These girls need to go away.

  • john

    Anyone who would buy a debit card because these trollops endorse it deserves to be ripped off. If you are a fan you are so far gone you deserve to be taken advantage of. Are they at least pictured naked on the cards? I notice that this dysfunctional family is on 24/7. Who is watching? Morons!

  • Abe Froman

    These bimbos will put their name on anytyhing! I wish that whole family would just go away.

  • Dennis

    another example of the shallowness of people who are ‘famous for just being famous’ – these vacuous bimbos need to go get real lives and quit showing up everywhere with nothing to do and nothing substantial to say.

      A further issue is that video gaimng has become one of the all-time main forms of recreation for people spanning various ages. Kids play video games, plus adults do, too. The XBox 360 has become the favorite video games systems for those who love to have a huge variety of activities available to them, along with who like to experiment with live with people all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your thinking in It’s Time for the Kardashians to Retire and call it Quit | moonface online magazine.

    The gals were hired for their tits and asses. Not for their intelligence or business savvy. They got a paycheck for doing what they did. My opinion of them hasn’t changed. They are money-grubbers making money off their daddy’s name.

  • pete elliot

    Now Matt Laurer of NBC should apologize to the public for not putting the “K” sisters feet in the fire during his interview for the Kard-card scam….

  • Miranda S.

    Ugh! These girls are really ruining my life! First, I get all these crazy fees on my Kardashian Kard. Now I’m being told the Kardashian Kondoms I bought might actually CAUSE STDs and unwanted pregnancy, not prevent them. My Kardashian Kalculator gives me incorrect answers, and my Kardashian Kable service only shows porn and reality TV. Please, girls. Stop endorsing things. You’re killing me.

    • ice

      LOL. Klassic!

    • Brett

      I nearly peed myself reading that.
      Miranda S. You should start a debit card.
