Using Heat to Change Information

Last Update: July 23, 2017

Pens with permanent inks have been used to sign documents, sign checks and in any case, it makes things become legal.

The Pilot Frixion Ball Point Erasable Gel Pens are pens that we should be concerned about. It is easy to remove information that was written by this pen by applying heat to the written word.

Once the information is removed you may replace it with whatever you chose to write. The information on a check that is sent to someone can be changed by applying heat to any part you would like to change.

Get familiar with these pens and be careful how you use them.

You can begin by being observant, The pen is made by Pilot and it has the word "FRIXION" written on it. From now on take notice of all the pens you use. Try to keep your own pen. If you do not know what you are about to use just don't use it and use your own.

If it did not happen already chances are it won't happen at all.
Stay safe
Luna.
