I want to put this info in my notes so I dont have the same problem as another did on the forum.They sent back the pettition because the Money order wasnt dated in the correct order.

Do you date the Money order EXAMPLES: Mar/03/2006 or 03/Mar/2006 or how? .Do all the Money orders you send have to be dated in the same fashion

Yes, mm/dd/year. I'm the USC who posted that and of course, we TOLD the bank that originally, but they didn't listen. And we were stupid enough to trust HSBC when they told us that we would have no problem.

:(

My advice, especially for anyone ording a money order in a foreign country, is to tell them to SPELL out the name of the month, instead of putting a number. If only HSBC had written "7 February, 2006" instead of 7-2-2006," I'm sure we would have had no problem.

I can see why that would be a problem since July 2nd has yet to occur. Banks here in the US would see that as a post dated check. Now had it been written out as metinspain had mentioned it would have been ok.

If you spell out the month, there is no ambiguity.

I'm writing this on March 6, 2006. In the US, most people would write that numerically as 03/06/2006 (or 03/06/06). But in much of the rest of the world, a date written that way would be interpreted at June 3, 2006.

Because I do a fair bit of international correspondence, long ago, I quit writing dates in numbers-only format. I now use dd mmm, yyyy, where "mmm" is the three-letter month abbreviation spelled out. Today is "06 Mar, 2006". I write it that way on checks and everything else.

But if you insist on writing number-only, and if the document is for a US-only audience, put the month before the day.

I have to agree.. write out the month on checks and money orders (and the like) and there should be no confusion... as for forms the majority of them will tell you how they want the date written..

If it uses the letter abbreviation or the month name spelled out it does not matter, however, if it is numeric it is mm/dd/yyyy. The reason that it matters with numerics is for that 3/4 is Mar 4 in some places and Apr 3 in others. The US uses month day year format however.
