Don’t Abbreviate 2020

 

New year, new date!
We may just be kicking off 2020, but authorities have already issued a warning on why you shouldn’t be abbreviating the new year.
The warning: Don’t write the date 1/1/20. Instead, write out 2020 in full, so it looks like this: 1/1/2020.
Authorities say the date is easily changeable and could ultimately be used against you.
Example: If you just write 1/1/20, a scammer could easily change it to 1/1/2017 (for instance) and now your signature is on an incorrect document.
