If you get fired from a job and employer made a mistake of overpaying you, does it get reported to one's consumer report if you don't return the money?

  • I would think. That would also be theft and they could prosecute.

  • They overpayed you when they fired you and now they want that back? I think they can't report it. I'm not sure though.

  • Is there any way that you could order your own consumer report?

  • OK, there are some dumbasses on here. If you employer overpaid you, morally you should return the money. I know if my work overpaid me they would suck it right back out of my account. BUT it is NOT THEFT. They are the idiots that did it.

  • They paid me my last pay in cash, but I after a week I received the same amount on my bank account so it wasn't my mistake. I called their job line and they told me to call the office who fired me, and I declined to do that. Why would I talk to the very people who fired me? I just felt so bad when I got fired because it was before the 30-day window. This happened 3yrs ago by the way
