Zelle® is a fast, safe and easy way to send and receive money with friends, family and others you trust – no matter where they bank.

It’s important to keep yourself and your money safe while using Zelle, and you can by following these three simple steps.

Only Send Money to Those You Trust
With Zelle®, you can send money from your account to someone else’s within minutes. It’s a great way to pay friends, family, your coworkers and almost anyone else you trust, but it shouldn’t be used to pay strangers.

Beware of Payment Scams
If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Zelle® doesn’t offer a protection program for authorized payments, so only use Zelle® to pay people you know and trust.

Treat Zelle® Like Cash
Money moves fast – directly into the enrolled recipient’s bank account. Always double check you have the recipient’s correct U.S. mobile number or email address, so the money goes to the right person.
