Is it Safe? Expand/Collapse

Yes, Interac® e-Transfers are very safe. When you send an Interac® e-Transfer, your money never travels by email or text. Email and text are only used to notify the recipient and to provide them with instructions on how to deposit money. Interior Savings and your recipient’s financial institution transfer funds using established and secure banking procedures.
