Remembering to Write the Correct Year

When writing a check, signing an important document or anything requiring a date - remember not to abbreviate our current year 2020. Always take the extra second to put 2020.

If you abbreviate the year it would be 20. At the end, someone could easily alter your date and tack on the number 19 and that will be 2019.

There are a lot of scams that can occur - altering checks, contracts you signed, etc.
