Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If they claim you were over paid, they have the burden to prove to you how you were over paid and how much is due. If they will not provide an itemized payroll statement proving how much you were over paid and they keep claiming this in collections, they only have 2 years to sue you for recovery of the money if you were under an oral contract and 4 years to sue you if you were under a written contract. If they will not provide you the itemized proof, then you will need to sue them in court for damages regarding them improperly reporting over payment on your credit and thus impairing you from getting future credit you apply for.
At this point you need to start writing them a letter informing them you deny owing them further money and that unless they provide you an itemized payroll statement proving the over payment, you demand they cease and desist their efforts to collect and remove any negative credit reports or you will sue them for damages for improperly reporting an invalid debt.
If they continue to refuse, you need to file suit against them I am afraid.
