accountability on unliquidated operational budgets / cash advances

First of all, thanks for adding me to the forum.

Just yesterday to my surprise, I received a demand letter from a previous employer (about 2.5 years ago) to settle my unliquidated operational budgets / cash advances. The letter I received is not yet "legal" in nature since it was written using the company's letterhead but the message clearly states a possible legal action against me should I fail to settle it within their prescribed period.

With all honesty, these funds were used to whatever purpose it was meant to be used, but my dilemma right now is I already discarded corresponding receipts to prove it because all the while I assumed there was no longer a need to liquidate since it has been almost 3 years and I did not receive any notifications from them even with the fact that they can connect with me easily via facebook and cellphone.

I also presume that they have already successfully collected payment from the clients I use to handle in the past which means that whatever result that was expected from us during that time was complied with, therefore the funds that was available for my dispense was used to its purpose or else those projects would have failed. It is also the same reason for which I came to the conclusion why they are not looking for the liquidations anymore.

Each and every penny I received had a receiving document as proof that I received the money which they can use as evidence against me.

I resigned from the company without getting cleared nor having to get my back-pay.

My question is: should they decide to go legal against me, will i be held accountable to the point they can put me to jail or be forced to pay the said amount?

Thanks! And more power!

by the way. I am not alone on this one. About 8 other former colleagues of mine received the similar demand letter.

yan ang mahirap pag hindi ka cleared sa previous employer.. i suggest you formally answer the letter and explain your side.. or maybe set a meeting and request for clearance...

After doing that, what if they don't accept my explanation and decide to take legal action on me, am I screwed? Does it automatically mean I choose between going to jail or paying the amount?
