[Owasp-leaders] email verification

I'm interested in soliciting opinions regarding e-mail address
verification when users enroll in e-banking/e-learning/e-government
services.  Should this always be a necessary step that a user should
verify that they own the e-mail ?  

what would be the risk if the user's ownership of the e-mail is not
verified?   I know this may sound like an obvious question, but I keep
seeing many critical services (such as e-banking) where users' ownership
of an email address is not verified.
