UniRush, LLC

unirush-rushcard-logoUniRush, LLC is the company behind the RushCard line of prepaid debit cards, including the popular Baby Phat Prepaid RushCard, the KLS RushCard as well as the Pink, Purple and Black Diamond RushCard line.

The overriding theme presented by the UniRush folks is to help provide basic financial tools to the millions of Americans that currently cannot or will not establish a banking relationship with a traditional institution. According to UniRush, they have opened the door to countless unbanked individuals and families across the country and been a leader in the industry as well as pioneered several programs that now are a part of many prepaid product offerings. Some of these include being a forefront partner in bringing Visa and MongeyGram to the prepaid market, initially providing check writing services to customers, establishing direct deposit programs and being the first prepaid card to include online account management (for balance tracking, budgeting and expense analysis).

As economic constraints bind many consumers hands, prepaid products like the RushCard have given many the flexibility and purchasing power of a network branded card while not having to worry about accumulating debt and outrageous interest charges that come with many credit cards. Bank account overdraft fees and exorbitant payday check cashing fees can add up for many people that do not possess a traditional bank account. Prepaid card operations like RushCard can assist those needing help getting their financial world in order and eliminate most if not all of those ghastly charges. Also gone are the demeaning credit qualification hoops that lending institutions put their customers through. A simple one-page form can be found online for the RushCard that only requires basic name, mailing address, contact info and a social security number to sign up for a card. There is no credit check or income verification initiated. If you provide the basic information requested, then you should be approved.

  • I have been attempting to contact rush card for 3 days they have not answered the phones do not work and they have failed to answer when they do ring hold time is greater than 2hrs 20 min and the employees have no answer. Today when I checked my card it said it has not been activated. I made payment arrangements for a bill on yesterday and have no idea where my entire check is. This is causing a great strain on me and because I missed my deadline for my ticket my drivers license are suspended, I asked the associate to send me proof that their system is to blame she said she was unable to do so… I’m currently seeking what legal action I am able to take

    • We need a class action suit against this company. My daughter has been without money since October 10, and is unable to pay her childcare, buy food, etc. This is unacceptable! I am contacting the news and newspaper in Cincinatti where their headquarters is located.

      Ronisha 5 years ago

  • Am having the same issues as LaDonna Washington and Erica Fields. Most of my bills are either past due or turned off. If anyone get legal help please advise me what actions you took. This is really ridiculous. I been without money since October 11. 2015, no answers from their customer service lines, and when I finally do answer they state someone will call you back they never do. I want my money and I want to be compensated for my times and bills getting cut off and anything else I and everybody else feel is rightfully to those you doing this way. Am very angry about this.!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I am right a long with you guys. I need my money they took debits off my account twice and then they fixed it so it shows that they just came of my account once. However they didn’t put the money back in my account for the debit coming off twice. I am also getting charged late fees. I have been placed on fold on more than once for over 4 hours, told that they would put my money back into my account however this didn’t happen. I have to have surgery on Tues Nov. 10 and will find out if I have cancer or not. I have enough going on in my life without a problem not being able to pay my bills because of their mistake. I am thinking about getting in touch with the Attorney General, the Banking Comm. Office and a private Attorney. They will end up paying a lot more than should be returned to my account. I have looked for a fax number to Russell’s Company but the only fax number listed is out of order.

  • The easiest and most effective way to resolve your issues with this company is simple. File a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This is serious stuff. The people at the top fear this organization more than any attorney firm. No one wants a CFPB investigation.
