Discussion on: I was emailed after abandoning a registration form. I did not click Submit. This is not ok.

Had a similar experience a while ago. My partner and I were halfway through filling out some form on a banking website to get pre-approved for a home loan, but found a different place and abandoned the form and closed the tab. The next day we got notified that this company ran even the incomplete information we'd typed and we each had a new inquiry on our credit reports. We never hit submit or made any indication of consent at all. Really freaked me out, and I'm incredibly cautious about filling any forms out now.
