LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - A cardholder is suing the sellers of a certain prepaid Visa card, alleging they defrauded cardholders.
Calvin Smith, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit April 13 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against UniRush LLC doing business as UniRush Financial Services, Rush Communications LLC, Rush Communications of NYC Inc., Meta Financial Group Inc., and MetaBank, alleging negligence, fraud and misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, breach of contract, conversion, breach of fiduciary duty and violations of California business and civil codes.
The suit says the defendants, who promote and sell prepaid Visa cards known as RushCards, denied RushCard account holders the ability to obtain funds in their accounts, misappropriated funds held in the accounts and unlawfully imposed fees and charges.
Smith and others in the class seek a jury trial, actual damages, punitive damages, statutory damages, injunctive relief, restitution and disgorgement, interests, attorney fees and costs. They are represented by attorneys Todd M. Friedman, Meghan E. George and Adrian R. Bacon of the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Beverly Hills, California.
