    Only send money to people you know and trust

    Money moves fast with Zelle®. Directly from checking account to checking account within minutes*. So, it’s important you know and trust the people you’re sending money to.

    You can’t cancel a payment once it’s been sent if the recipient is already enrolled with Zelle®, so it’s important to get it right the first time.

    Beware of payment scams

    If you send money to someone you don’t know for a product or service you might not receive (like paying for something in advance), you may not get your money back.

    Neither Reliant Credit Union nor Zelle® offers a protection program for authorized payments made with Zelle®. So, if you aren’t sure you will get what you paid for, you should use another payment method with purchase protection, such as a credit card.

    Treat Zelle® like cash
