Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is warning consumers about a new pre-paid credit card recently unveiled by the Kardashian sisters; Kim, Kourtney and Khloe.

Blumenthal says the card charges outrageous fees.

Among them; ATM fees, monthly fees, call-center fees and cancellation fees.

Blumenthal says keeping up with the Kardashians is virtually impossible using this card when even activation fees are as high as $100.

"The value of the card is swallowed, by the fees and charges imposed on young people who use it. And it is marketed as a money-management teaching tool," Blumenthal said.

Blumenthal also criticized the card's attempt to attract financially unsophisticated young adults and questioned whether it violated Connecticut consumer laws.
