The company’s digital-only approach advances its efforts to enhance environmental sustainability by moving to 100% paperless
DENVER — (Oct. 18, 2023) — Marygold & Co., a full-service financial provider, today announced a new initiative to eradicate the risk of check fraud within its mobile app, no longer accepting remote check deposits.
Check deposit functionality in mobile banking apps is frequently targeted by fraudsters, with nearly 75% of mobile banking scams involving check deposit features and fake checks. Between the rise in digital banking solutions and a decades long decline in check usage, the discontinued feature saw minimal use from regular users.
“Understanding that change can be challenging, we firmly believe that removing this feature is a step in the right direction for our company, customers and the environment. Check fraud is a massive challenge, and ending support for check deposits in our mobile app empowers us to take a stand,” said Nicholas Gerber, Marygold & Co.’s CEO. “A significant milestone in our commitment to client success, this move will not only help us streamline our operations but encourage our valued clients to embrace digital payment methods that are faster, more secure and environmentally friendly.”
Discontinuing this feature empowers Marygold & Co. to shift its focus to leading the digital-only fintech space. The company’s digital app continues providing a wide variety of convenient and innovative money management features — from PayAnyone®, which enables users to pay anyone through the app, regardless of whether they use the Marygold & Co. app, to Money Pools savings accounts that help them save and invest toward various financial goals. Marygold & Co. still offers a Mastercard™ Debit card that clients who prefer physical solutions can use worldwide wherever major cards are accepted.
