Make sure you write out “2020” this year

When you date a document this year, make sure you write out 2020 and never abbreviate it. If you do, it could be easily altered to read any year of this century! For example, if you wrote “01.01.20” for the date, someone could change that to “01.01.2000” or “01.01.2014” or “01.01.2099” or whatever they wanted within this entire century! That could mean some serious things in the legal and business world, depending on what it is. Even on a check, it could spell disaster. So this entire year, make sure you take the time to write out “2020” for the year in any date that you write on any document. Just be safe out there!
