As sending money online becomes easier and more accessible than ever before, it is important to be cautious and send your hard-earned cash safely.

Although Zelle® is secure and user-friendly, there are steps you can take to further guarantee you’re protected and that your money goes to the right person every time.
  • Only send money to people you know and trust
    • You should never send money online without knowing the person you are sending it to personally. 
  • Confirm that you have the correct mobile number or email address before sending
    • Double-checking before transferring funds will help guarantee that your money is going to the right person!
  • Confirm the amount before sending
    • Even though you might be willing to do anything for your sister, it’s smart to make sure you are sending her the $50 you owe her, instead of an accidental $500.
