Pay It Safe With Zelle®
Digital payments continue to grow in popularity across the U.S. And with issues like identity theft and other cybercrimes on the rise, it’s important to know what you can to do help protect yourself and your money when sending & receiving money digitally.
With Zelle®, you can send money from your account to someone else’s within minutes.3 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.
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.
Money moves fast—directly into the enrolled recipient’s 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.
Zelle® partnered with Vox to create the Explainer Series, "The Science Behind Scams," educating folks about modern day scams. Think you can spot a scam? Check out the series and take the quiz!
