DEFENDERS: Don’t abbreviate 2020 on documents

Consumer advocates are warning you not to abbreviate the new year on official documents because it can be easily changed.

Documents dated with a 20 could be changed to 2021, or any year in the 21st Century. Consumer advocates say it's best to write out '2020' on all official paperwork and checks.

  1. This is dumb. how does one change “20” to “21”????? I could see changing “20” to “26” but then again “19” could have easily been changed to “18”. This fluff piece was a waste of time.
