PORTLAND, OR – Simple today announced the addition of Carrie Roso to the company’s corporate leadership team. Roso will serve as Director of Marketing for the fintech.

In her role, Roso will lead all of Marketing, including Simple brand, organic and paid customer acquisitions, lifecycle marketing, and public relations . She brings years of experience brand-building and innovating within financial services.

Roso has concentrated her career on a customer-centric approach to money, in clear alignment with Simple’s direction. “SInce its beginning, I’ve watched Simple develop a different approach to banking -- and to money in general -- that’s truly customer-focused,” said Roso. “That’s in lock-step with my own philosophy.”

“Carrie shares our passion for talking about and managing money at a human level,” said Simple CEO David Hijirida. “I expect to see that passion come through in our future messaging, as we take the conversation beyond banking, to the emotional core of personal finance.”

Roso is also enthusiastic about Simple’s continuing efforts to test and deliver opportunities for consumers to be more intentional with their money. “Simple’s size allows it to be nimble and remain very close to the customer,” said Roso. “That ability to evaluate what resonates with customers, try new ideas and do it quickly really appeals to me.”

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.
