Stupid, ha-ha! I would guess whoever handles paid bills, put in the wrong code to mark it as actually paid!
Something similar happened to me once. When I called about it, they were very embarrassed!

Mark, you're missing a golden opportunity!

Write them a check for "zero dollars and 00/100 cents" and mail it in.

You reckon they'd cash it but I'm too cheap to pay for the stamp

Oh, I'll give you the stamp...I'll even pay for the stamp to mail you a stamp. I just want to see you collapse their entire billing system when they try to refund the $0.00 that you overpaid....LOL.

Yes, yes...mail in a check for $0.00. I'd loved to see what the reaction will be.
