ok, well.. that's what I thought. I have been sent to a collection agency for 9000 now. Any chance that can be reduced? I haven't recieved any LTD payments since the overpayment.
wait, I'm not sure I understand... do I actually have any leg to stand on as far as the overpayment?
I'm not getting what my defense would be... what is affirmative defense?
ok, would it be cheaper to just pay the overpayment or to obtain counsel and fight this? Or is there damages that could be applied?
Ok, I can go from here. Thanks very much!
