The Problem with 2020
No, not the year itself, but how you write the year on important documents such as checks, invoices and contracts.
The year 2020 provides scam artists a unique opportunity to forge documents. How?
For example, if you write a check and date it 1/3/20 a scammer could easily change the date to 2017 and then try to cash it as an "old" check. Or a scammer could make an invoice look "old" and unpaid.
The solution is easy. Write the year in full 2020.
Personally I think the year 1/1/2020 - 12/31/2020 will be a great year. But the year 1/1/20 - 12/31/20 not so much.
Oh, and a quick note for my international readers. I'm writing dates in "American", that's month/day/year and not the day/month/year that you use. But the scam avoidance is still the same!
