This is exactly what happened with me with my D90! I didn't have a screen protector on my D40 and the LCD screen was spotless. I saw stuff on the D90 screen and didn't think anything of it for months thinking that I had stuff on the outside of the plastic. When I went to clean it much to my horror I discovered that it was between the plastic and the LCD which ended up pitted and scratched!
