Money Moral Dilemma
Every week, the Money Tips email features a real-life Money Moral Dilemma (MMD for short). They're intended to encourage debate and, as such, they're usually among the most discussed threads each week.
Should I report my colleague for not telling payroll he's been overpaid?
A few years ago, I moved overseas for work and was given a €750 a month allowance. A few months after I got back I noticed it was still being paid, so I contacted payroll, who thought it had been stopped and asked me to pay back the €3,750 overpayment. Recently I had lunch with a colleague who moved back at the same time as me, who said his allowance eventually just stopped and he hadn't been asked to pay anything back. I feel like I've been punished for being honest, so should I ask payroll to look in to it, or is that just petty?
You can find out what our MSE Forumites think and add your own two cents on the Money Moral Dilemma discussion thread. Heed the MSE Forum rules: keep it kind and keep it clean. Remember, there's a real person behind every Money Moral Dilemma.

Your two cents
Next week we'll learn about what will happen to our energy bills from July onwards. Our Energy board is a great place to ask questions about all things gas and electric and tap in to the wisdom of knowledgeable Forumites.
