£724.23! I'm rich!

It's slightly embarrassing that I failed to notice for eighteen months that I had overpaid my company credit card by more than £700, but still, I'm rich!

Of course when I posted that, it didn't complain about the HTML that I didn't think was there...

How does one overpay it? I don't think I've ever paid anything into my card, it only does stuff that goes through expenses :-)

Or have you found some way of claiming things twice...? ;-)

It's the one time I used it for personal expenditure.

What happened was that I paid the restaurant bill at a leaving do using my corporate AMEX card. I then paid off the balance outside of e-Expenses, and I think must have paid it again two months later on seeing a statement that showed the amount but which must have passed the first payment going in the opposite direction.

Or something like that.
