Police in Maine are advising people to write out the FULL year 2020 when signing legal documents. In a Facebook post, the East Millinocket Police Department said writing “20” for the year 2020 could lead to potential fraud.
The police department said someone could add additional digits to the abbreviated year. For example, a person could add the digits “19” to make it look like “2019.”
“It could potentially save you some trouble down the road,” the department wrote in their Facebook post.
