Fraud Alert: Dating Documents in 2020
For this year, 2020, it is especially important to use the full year when writing dates to protect yourself from becoming a victim of fraud.
Abbreviating to the last two digits of the year can create a fraud opportunity, as the date could easily be changed by adding numbers to the end.
For example: 1/9/20 could become post-dated to 1/9/2019 or dated to be in the future to 1/9/2021.
Protect your information and write out the full year of 2020 on checks, forms, and other documentation.
