2024: A Forger’s Delight?

Ann Mahoney, the esteemed Certified Forensic Document Examiner and Court-Qualified Handwriting Expert offers compelling insight as we enter 2024.

Here’s a thought that’s as intriguing as cautionary: The numerical makeup of 2024 is an inadvertent blessing for those with forgery in mind. Over the years, we’ve witnessed attempts to manipulate figures: a “1” being altered to resemble a 4, 7, 6, or 9, and the “4” being tampered to appear as a 9. Such changes usually left behind evidence of meddling—noticeable overwriting, erasures, patches, and awkward gaps.

Yet, 2024 brings with it a sly simplicity. Consider a date like 5/12/24 (or its variants like 5-12-24, 5.12.24). One can transform it into 5/12/2010 or even 5/12/2045 by appending two digits at its end. Be it handwritten or typewritten, truncating the year leaves the data exposed. A date concluding in ’24’ is malleable to any year between 2000 and 2099, ushering in avenues for manipulation, especially when important contracts or legalities rely on precise dates. The aftermath? Potentially catastrophic.

It’s more than just marking a date; it’s about ensuring the integrity of essential documents—from legal wills, property deeds, and corporate contracts to invaluable medical records. The 2020 Rule serves as a protective measure. This year’s most valuable New Year’s Resolution could emphasize the full date.

At Zumifi, we prioritize your safety and transparency in all financial endeavors. As we navigate through 2024, remember to date your documents meticulously. As always, we’re by your side, fortifying your financial stability!
