DRUGGED DRIVING IN NORTH CAROLINA

Drugged Driving – or Drug DWI – is a form of “Impaired Driving,” under N.C.G.S. 20-138.1. This is the same law that the State uses to convict drunk drivers.

HOW TO SETUP CASH APP ON YOUR SMARTPHONE TO PAY ATTORNEY FEES

What to know about cash app fees, sending money, and finding friends.
* * *

WHAT IS CASH APP? Cash App is the name of a popular mobile payment service which lets you electronically send money to friends and family with just a smartphone. Cash App is free to use and accepts debit cards, credit cards, and Bitcoin. Here’s a closer look at what Cash App is, how to set it up, and how to send your first payment.

CASH APP IS A MOBILE SUBSIDERY OF SQUARE. Formerly known as Square Cash, Cash App is a peer-to-peer mobile payment app founded by mobile payment platform Square in 2013. Cash App lets you send money to someone with just a phone number, email address, or $Cashtag (a unique Cash App ID).

OTHER IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT CASH APP. Cash App is free to use for sending, receiving, and transferring money using a debit card or bank account. Credit card transfers will attract a 3% transaction fee.
Cash App does not currently support international money transfers (domestic transfers only). Transfers are sent immediately and can be deposited to a domestic bank account same-day for a fee, or within one to three days for free. By default, you can send up to $250 within any 7-day period and receive up to $1,000 within any 30-day period. You can increase these limits, however. Payments are instant and generally can’t be cancelled if you make an error.

CASH APP IS AVAILABLE FOR iPHONE AND ANDROID. Currently, Cash App doesn’t support payments to international recipients. If you need to send international payments, considering using another payment service.

HOW SECURE IS CASH APP

ENCRYPTED DATA. According to Cash App, any Information you submit is encrypted and sent to their servers securely, both over Wi-Fi connections or data services (3G, 4G, or EDGE).

PCI-DSS LEVEL I COMPLIANT. Cash App is also PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) Level 1 compliant. PCI-DSS is an industry standard set up by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council to ensure that merchants adhere to a high level of security when processing credit cards electronically.

OPTIONAL VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK (VPN) USEAGE. While Cash App transactions are encrypted, you may also want to consider using a VPN (virtual private network) app when using financial services like Cash App over public Wi-Fi.
