Here’s an important tip to help against scammers that’s recently gone viral for the year 2020…

When signing and dating legal documents, do not use  the number “20” as an abbreviation for the year 2020. Here’s why…

The date January 5th, 2020, written as 1/5/20 could be modified to 1/5/2017 or 1/5/2018 by simply adding on those numbers!

Now, we all know, there is the possibility that all abbreviated years could be altered, so yes, the same could’ve been done for 2019, by using the number 19 and then adding on a misl year, but…

“Changing 19 to 1999 isn’t the same as changing something from 20 to 2019 or 2021. I know there are a lot of ‘experts’ commenting but there are also a lot of scammers waiting for an opportunity like this,” wrote a woman named Michelle Jones.

Police say criminals are always looking for ways to take advantage of people, and this is not intended as legal advice or a warning, only as a cautionary tip to be aware of.
