  1. Hello, my name is Walter and I'd like to give my opinion about Online Banking.

    Well, first I have to say that I never used this system before. Maybe it is more convenient not to pay in person, but still I feel insecure about it.

    I have no strong opinions against it, but I feel more confident to do it in person.

  2. This is what I think about online banking.

    Firstly, lots of people lose their jobs.
    Secondly,someone could get into your account and steal money
    Thirdly, you need your own computer at home
    Lastly, you still have to deposit money into the bank.

    Finally I want to say that I think the security is not safe although internet banking is more cheaper, saves time and you don't have to stand in queues.
