Those are some of my mistakes. I am not saying opening an online banking account is a big mistake. The number 2, 3 and number 4 are the big mistakes.

Learn from these mistakes. Do not use the same email as if you are just creating a social media account. Always clear cookies, CTRL + SHFT + DEl can solve this problem. Lastly, beware of email phishing who are just collecting your bank account information.
