A warning for 2020

We are already in the third week of 2020, but it’s not too late to wish you a happy and blessed New Year!

I am writing this quick update today to warn you about potential pitfalls when signing contracts, dating important letters or even (if you still do such a thing) signing checks.

Write out the year in 2020

Before signing and dating in 2020, make sure to write the year out fully. All four digits of it! When you write only “20” next to your day and month, a malevolent individual might change the year to any other year in 2000’s by just adding two numbers to it.

13.1.2020 not 13.1.20

13. January 2020 not 13. January 20

How long does it take YOU to adjust to the new year date? I feel like I just got a hang of signing with 2019 instead of 2018…
