Lawsuit Regarding RushCard Computer Glitch Issues
Along with the lawsuit, RushCard is under investigation by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
The suit claims fraud because thousands of users were not able to withdraw money from their accounts for more than 12 days.
There is no word on how much the cardholders are suing for, but the reports claim that they want Simmons and his partners to pay for "damages and restitution."
According to the companies that run the card—Rush
Simmons personally tweeted about the glitch Thursday, assuring cardholders that everything was up and running, except for one feature.
He was empathetic about the problems the glitch had caused cardholders, and went on to say that he welcomes the federal investigation because it'll show that he's running a clean financial shop.
