    SF overpaid me grants of around £1,000, the other day I get a letter telling me it's been sent to a debt collector and I should go online and make a payment.

    Am I being scammed?

    that would seem suspicious as they wouldnt go straight to a debt collector, give slc a call to get it sorted.

    Hi lokalokaloka,

    We would normally send out letters to advise of any overpayment before been referred to a debt collector. If you can give us a call on 0300 100 0607 we can check this for you.

    Thanks Erin.
