Forgeries/Fraud

If your agency issued a check to a vendor/customer/client who claims to have not received the check but the check has been negotiated, please assist the individual in completing an Affidavit of Forgery (MS Word). The original, notarized Affidavit of Forgery along with a copy of the check and a cover memo containing your contact information must be submitted to the Treasurer’s Office, Attn: Michelle Kimball, State House Station #39, Augusta, ME 04333-0039. Inter-Office questions regarding forgeries may be directed to Michelle at (207) 624-7478 or via email (michelle.l.kimball@maine.gov). We kindly ask you not to direct claimants to call the Treasurer’s Office. However, if you are unable to answer a claimant’s questions, you may request Michelle Kimball to contact the claimant directly.
