Abbreviating 2020

By in Uncategorized with 0 Comments

Security officials are warning consumers to not abbreviate “2020” in official documents because they say it can be an easy way for scammers to commit forgery. They say the abbreviation makes it easy for scammers to change out the numbers on paperwork. For example, if you write a date like “1/3/20,” scammers could change it to “1/3/2000” or 1/3/2021.”
Instead, write out the full year as “1/3/2020” or, better yet, write out the name of the month as well to read “January 3, 2020.”
Why would scammers want to change a date? They could seek to establish an unpaid debt or to attempt to cash an old check.
