Abstract: The new millennium is fast approaching, and with it comes the much-publicized \\"Y2K\\" or \\"century date change\\" computer problem. Katherine Gockelman outlines how the major players in the financial services industry have prepared their systems to meet the challenges of the century date change. More important, she outlines information that consumers of financial services need to know so that they too can be prepared for any potential mishaps, and be on the alert for Y2K-oriented scams.

Keywords: Financial services industry; Year 2000 date conversion (Computer systems);
