I have a situation right now with my electric company.

For the past several months I have paid my bills online at their website using my checkcard. A bill I paid early in November has not cleared my checking account yet. All the bills before and the 2 bills since have cleared.

The electric company shows it as paid, but the credit union has no record of it. Everyone is happy, but I don't feeling comfortable using that $71.33. I'd like to use it to pay some debt.

I feel like as soon as I void the transaction in Quicken and use the money that someone at the electric company will say "Oh! Here is the $71.33 error" and come for their money.

Oh well, I guess I will just sit on it and earn 3% :)

I am a stickler for everything being balanced to the penny in my checkbook and hate this feeling that all is not well... :)
