A Quick 2020 Bit of Advice

This one was passed on by the local news, who does manage to occasionally NOT be a complete waste of the airwaves, LOL.

Anyway, said advice was that when write 2020 on anything remotely important, esp things like checks, contracts, etc… write out the entire year. If you abbreviate it “20”, a dishonest person will have an easy time altering the date. The worst possible example they gave was a contract being extended 10 years by adding 30 after the 20.
