Announcing CA$H$IMPLE

UPDATE: Way back in 2013, we put this post together for April Fool's Day. While we don't engage in this sort of malarkey very often, we've left this post up for posterity. Feel free to have a read of CA$H$IMPLE in all its 2013 glory, but please don't take it seriously!

Here in Simple’s home city of Portland, OR, we deal with a lot of cash. With Portland’s staggering array of food carts and strip clubs, we always seem to have heaps of cash laying around. Although it’s nice to just kinda look at, we’ve always wished we could manage it using the same beautiful web and mobile apps that we’ve built to manage our debit card spending.

Until now, Simple customers had to turn cash into money orders, and then deposit using Photo Check Deposit. As one very clever Twitter follower of ours has noted, that’s not very Simple! We agree, and that’s why today, we’re thrilled to announce CA$H$IMPLE!

CA$H$IMPLE is the perfect way to keep your cash in order. Just like all the tools we’ve built, CA$H$IMPLE has the beauty and simplicity of use you’ve come to expect from our team. It works like this: just stack your cash (US Dollars only, Bitcoin support is in beta) in denomination from lowest to highest, then tap “Deposit Cash” on your Simple Activity screen. From there, enter the amount, snap a photo, and boom! Cash in your account. Immediately!

We know you’ll love how absolutely effortless it is to fund your account in this way.

Im rich!

Important! This account is for your personal use only

An increasing number of customers are being targeted by fraud scams. Before you apply, review these guidelines to help prevent you from being involved in fraudulent activity.

Do not open an account on behalf of someone else
If anyone asks you to open a Simple Account to receive funds, it is an attempt at fraud. Common fraud attempts include requesting that you open an account to receive a gift or bonus offer, obtain a job or job training, or help someone else receive funds (such as unemployment benefits).

Do not share your login or account information with anyone
Neither Simple nor any other legitimate institution will ever ask for your account information. If any third party requests your Simple Account login information, it is an attempt at fraud. Sharing your account information with another person or allowing someone else to use your account to receive funds is a violation of the Simple Deposit Account Agreement terms and conditions and can expose you to fraud.

Actions we may take if fraud is suspected

We take fraud and security very seriously at Simple, and take rapid action in the instance of suspected fraud attempts.

We may freeze and close accounts
We may freeze and close accounts if fraudulent activity is suspected, including the following circumstances:

We will report fraud attempts
We are responsible for reporting fraud attempts to authorities, including attempted unemployment fraud. There are state and federal penalties for unemployment insurance fraud (including potential fines and incarceration). If you suspect you are a victim of unemployment fraud, contact the appropriate state fraud hotline listed here.
