2020 fraud warning


With the new decade upon us, police in Maine are advising people to write out the year 2020 when signing legal documents. The East Millinocket Police Department said writing ‘20’ for the year 2020 could lead to potential fraud. It said someone could add additional digits to the abbreviated year such as ‘19’ to make it look like ‘2019.’ ‘It could potentially save you some trouble down the road,’ the department wrote.
