This is almost certainly an old scam in a new bottle. I'll lay you odds that they would "deposit" money in your account, you'd use that money to buy bitcoins and send them to the "vendors", and after a few days the bank would figure out that the deposit was bogus (bad check, money stolen from somebody else's account), and debit your account for the amount of the deposit. You'd be left on the hook for the cost of the bitcoins, there's no calling those back or getting a refund.

There are a bunch of scams that take advantage of consumers that don't realize that some bank transactions can be reversed and some can't.

    Even if the originating transaction never gets reversed, this is almost certainly a scam. The OP is being used as a money mule to convert cash into bitcoin without a clear connection back to the scammer (the account the Zelle transaction originates from is probably stolen). Sometimes, scammers don't want to actually steal anything from a victim, they just want to use the victim as a pawn in a bigger scam. Even if your own finances aren't compromised, you may still be getting scammed. – dwizum Sep 12 at 13:47

If there is money to change hands, one need only to use Zelle, which requires an email address associated with one's bank account. The bank information need not be sent to the money-sender. A mobile phone number can also be used. Only one of the two items is required. The rest of the information demands point to a scam. Beware.
