Look out for the Ke$ha Kard
Kim Kardashian's cleavage overpowers the rampaging Kardashian Kard
Looks like America can't handle Kim, Khloe and Kourtney's krazy fees debit "kard." Launched only on Nov. 10, the sisters Kardashian are dropping their prepaid MasterCard-branded card, which along with a high price tag, featured the likeness of Kim's cleavage.
The card's targeting of teens prompted Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal to launch an investigation, which inspired a statement from Kardashian lawyer Dennis Roach.
"The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults," Roach said. "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."
Maybe it's the potential bad image, or maybe it's just that a mere 250 people signed up for the card, which costs $99.95 annually, not including the purchase fee of $9.95 and monthly fees of $7.95, but this predatory credit card will soon be dead.
Not that many fair-minded people will mourn its demise. There is a $1 fee for adding funds, a call to customer service costs $1.50 and there's a $2 penalty for automatic bill pay. Those who couldn't resist the Kardashians' plastic may continue using it for 30 days, after which they will receive refunds of balances and up-front fees, reports Time.
