Hunter Shkolnik is one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys representing the thousands of RushCard customers who were allegedly shut out of their prepaid card accounts last October. Under the terms of the settlement, customers will be reimbursed for all fees that were assessed by RushCard in addition to previously issued credits. Additional relief may also be possible for RushCard customers based on documentation they provide.
RushCards are issued by MetaBank and are a popular alternative tool for low-and moderate income Americans who have been declined by the banking system. A switch in payment processors that was supposed to take hours locked RushCard customers out of their accounts for more than week.
