Thank you for your question.
This money is not legally yours, even though you are receiving it through no fault of your own. At some point your employer will be coming to request it back from, so if you do not give it back now, you may be requested to pay it all back at some point in the future. Your best may be to deal with this now, ensuring that you are taken off their payroll and that the money is returned.
