Can I get in trouble for reporting security issues with my banks' online interface?

I want to be discrete because I'm slightly worried about getting in trouble. I recently discovered that I can decrease a single number in a URL at an online financial institutions' website and see other people's linked checking accounts from other banks. I could get their routing numbers and checking account numbers. I have a big long email written that explains the issue in detail, however I'm worried I could somehow face trouble. At first I thought the most I'd get out of it was a reward, but paranoia has me thinking I might face scariness. Should I send the mail?
