Q: What are my options? What can I do?

I had a company send me a w-2 for 2019. I never worked for them that year. I did work for them the year before. The w-2 said I was paid just under $900.00. I never got any money. I think the boss used my info to get the money for himself.

Not really a family law question but, my advice would be to call the company & ask why you were sent the w-2. Best of Luck!
