Can a Zelle transfer be reversed?

Zelle never states that a payment can be reversed under no circumstances. The cited User Service Agreement (paragraph 11) basically relieves Zelle and Bank of any liability from the payment. In other words, they don't have the responsibility to reverse payments in a fraud situation, but it doesn't say they can't.

Also, can you dispute a Zelle transfer?

Criminals have flocked to the service because, like wire transfers, Zelle transactions cannot be disputed or reversed, and some consumers have been overly trusting of the service due to its affiliation with traditional banks. In many cases, banks are declining to help, citing Zelle's policy.

Furthermore, how long does a Zelle refund take? If your recipient does not register with Zelle within 14 days, the money will be returned back to your account. Once your recipient registers with Zelle, this and all future payments to them are typically delivered in minutes.

Likewise, people ask, what happens if you Zelle the wrong person?

Sending money to the wrong recipient could result in a loss of funds. However, you can cancel a payment if the recipient has not yet enrolled with Zelle. If you sent money to the wrong person, we recommend contacting the recipient and requesting the money be returned.

Can you get scammed on Zelle?
