But supposedly a WhatsApp message from the Bank of Israel has been circulating which looks like spam or fake news -- but actually isn't. It suggests or requires people to write out the full date this year e.g. "20/8/2020" instead of using the common shortcut "20/8/20." The reason: it's easy for someone to change a date that looks like "20/8/20" to "20/8/2019" by simply adding "19" to the end of the date.
It's criminal to change a date in this fashion. But being careful to write out "20/8/2020" may save you a big headache. For example, a check you made out for "20/8/20" could be presented for payment if someone doctored it to read "20/8/2019" -- even though the check was meant to be paid in August 2020.
