The company that I worked for as a specialist in retail sent to the IRS a 1099-MISC stating they had paid me 2 grand. I never received a single dollar from them.

You worked for them for free? You worked for them as a consultant?

Are you on a cash or accrual basis?

If the company is on the accrual basis and you sent them a bill and they have recorded it as a payable, could explain the reason they sent the 1099.

Do they still owe you the money?
