Make a note of  the date, in full

POLICE in Murcia have issued a strict warning to anyone signing, or filling out, important documents in 2020, because dates this year can be written as 07/01/2020 or, more briefly, 07/01/20.

The latter can be doctored easily, however, with an extra two digits to change the date to 07/01/2012, for example.

It is why police are advising that dates be written in their full year form, potentially, to avoid any legal or criminal consequences.

Fortunately, the situation will not occur again for more than a century, in 2121!
