Kardashians Sued for Ginormous Debit Card Loss

1/8/2011 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Kardashian women -- Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Kris -- are accused of causing more than $75 million in debit card damage ... and they never pulled a single card out of their wallets.

The Revenue Resource Group, LLC filed a lawsuit in Fresno, CA claiming the Kardashians breached their contract when they pulled out of a deal to be the faces of a controversial MasterCard-approved prepaid debit card.

As we previously reported, the K-ladies claimed they quit the deal because they had no idea the card was loaded with hidden, possibly illegal fees ... fees that caused the Attorney General of Connecticut to open an investigation into the card.

Revenue Resource Group claims the sisters signed a two-year deal that they should have honored -- and since the fam backed out, RRG has been crushed by a wave of bad publicity.

RRG wants the women to fork over more than $75 mil to make things right.

So far, no comment from the Kardashians.

Get back to work!    

Don't these women have business managers to screen business opportunities before they contractually agree to them? The debit card deal was loaded with so many unbelievable fees that it immediately attracted negative attention. But who would agree to such a lengthy partnership with a terrible product vendor, unless greed was completely clouding their vision and business sense?

Re: 121, like the theory that Rob is Mason's dad, too funny. Wonder which one is flicking Mason's penis "just to see what happens." My money is on Khloe.

I'm here to fan the flames some more. Here is exactly what the Kardashians were involved with. And it targeted young impressionable girls.


Kim Kardashian's new credit card, "The Kardashian Kard," has a terrible pricing model. Worse than you might expect. It's a prepaid card, which means it targets kids. Fair enough.
But it costs between $60... and $100 to activate -- an unprecedented starter fee for prepaid cards.

Celent analyst Zilvinas Bareisis tells American Banker: "I am baffled — this card doesn't seem to make sense at all, it appears to be targeted at teenagers, yet with ridiculous fees. If there is such a thing as a luxury prepaid market, then it's not going to be the teens."

Here's the full list of abnormally high fees:
Kardashian Prepaid MasterCard
Card Purchase (Includes monthly fees for 6 months) $59.95
Card Purchase (Includes monthly fees for 12 months) $99.95
Monthly Fee (Applies after initial purchase period) $7.95
Card Replacement - Primary or Companion $9.95
ATM Withdrawal - Domestic $1.50
ATM Inquiry or Decline - Domestic $1.00
ATM Withdrawal - International $2.50
ATM Inquiry or Decline - International $2.00
Point of Sale - Decline -Domestic $1.00
Point of Sale - Decline - International $1.00
External Checking or Savings Transfer (To/From) $1.00
Account to Account Transfer * $1.00
Retail Load Fee (MoneyGram) $1.00
Load Account by Debit/Credit Card ** $1.00
Cancel Account - Request Balance Mailed by Check $6.00
Service Center Care-Live operator $1.50
Bill Pay - Per Item $2.00
Replacement Card Expedite Fee (Overnight) $25.00
* Fee for transferring money from external accounts and to other cardholder accounts
** 2.5% surcharge of transaction amount applies

Are you kidding???? Who cares what these idiots do? And as far as reality shows go if anyone thinks for one moment that they are real let me tell you somethig "GET A LIFE FOR GOODNESS SAKES" There is nothing real about any of them. It's all planned out and the nastier the people are, the more the viewers the stations get. I believe that they should cancel all of them and the reason they don't is they don't have enough sense to write a good show and keep it going with a script every week. So we are left with these shallow uninteresting idiots. And by the way I hope they have to pay every single penny back and then some. Hopefuly they will fade away or better yet just get the hell out!!! RLMAO

I agree with those who have commented that these are a group of women who have done nothing notable or honourable to become ridiculously famous. TMZ ... let's focus more on real role models - people who have worked hard to make this a better world. There is way too much attention given to people like the Kardashians (and there are plenty of them, unfortunately!). We need to focus our energies on people who work hard to make a positive contribution to society; not people who are crazy enough to have their behinds injected with God knows what!

Too bad Russell Simmons still endorses a "debit" card with identical "hidden" fees.
