(WJW)- A word of advice when it comes to signing legal documents in the New Year.  The East Millinocket Police Department in Maine posted on their Facebook page a word of caution when it comes to abbreviating 2020.

If you sign a document and only put 20 as the year, someone could modify it to include a different year.

According to the department,  by writing out 2020 it could potentially save you some trouble down the road.
