QBO creating random journal entries

I'm working on getting ready for month-end financials and I just noticed QBO randomly created a "Receive Payment" matching one JE from DEC 2006 to another random JE from NOV 2007 on March 11, 2021.  They are not related to each other and the Vendor has been deleted for years now.  The audit history does show this is from QBO and this is what I found in the memo of the payment:  "Created by QB Online to link credits to charges."


Any suggestions on what to do with this?  It made it a $0 payment, but I really don't like the idea of QBO just randomly doing this, especially so many years later.  I can't delete it unless I undelete that old vendor account.

When I do this, it keeps  trying to pass me to a payroll person.  We don't use Intuit payroll.  What do I need to do to get to another group?  Thanks!

Good afternoon, @ChristinaA1219


Thanks for reaching back out to the Community. I can give you some information to help get you to the right support for this journal entry problem. 


To get in touch with someone that's not from the payroll team, you may need to ask the agent to transfer you to the right department. Sometimes our payroll support can help with issues like this as well. Here's the link again for steps on how to contact our Customer Support Team


Let me know if that helps. I want to make sure that this gets taken care of as quickly as possible. If you have any other concerns, feel free to ask. I'll always be around to help. Bye for now!
