Something you may have seen around social media and news sites is regarding the dating of documents, and the dangers of abbreviating 2020 to just “20”. While it is common practice to shorten the year to 2 digits, this poses a potential threat when the last 20 years have started with “20”. In an article from Forbes, it is mentioned that:
“The problem stems from the ease at which the year 20 can be changed to any date from the last two decades. For example 04/01/20 could easily be changed to 04/01/2017, giving scammers a chance to defraud you.”.
This little piece of information is helpful in both business and personal applications. As a part of our commitment to being your risk management partner, we like to share ways to keep you, your staff, and your company protected in 2020.
As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions you have regarding background screening. We are happy to help!
