- Wedding: May 2012
To make a long story short, my DH just got a letter in the mail from his graduate school saying they had accidently refunded him too much money for 2012 and he needs to pay it back. We thought they made a mistake when we got the refund check several months ago, so we went down to registrar to let them know. The lady we spoke with insisted it was a refund for a class my DH had dropped and that the amount was accurate.
So here we are after a cross country move, a wedding, a honeymoon, me not being able to find work yet, and my DH just starting a new job. We are barely scraping by and we are now told we owe $700 because they accidently refunded us too much. My DH thinks we owe the money and it’s fair to pay it, whereas I feel like at this point it is their mistake and we shouldn’t be blindsided with a bill 8 months later. Any advice?
