Propane

Since I live way out in the middle of nowhere, I have propane heating in my garage. The tanks are huge, so it costs about 360 dollars to refill each of them.
I called the company and asked if it was possible for them to come out and only refill one of the tanks, since my husband and I could not afford to pay for both to be filled, and we don't use that much propane anyways. They said it would be no problem.
When the propane truck showed up, my husband spoke to the driver in person, and confirmed that he would only fill one tank.
Surprise Surprise though, he filled both anyways! The propane company is 'sorry' and admit it was their mistake, but we still have to pay them an extra $360.

Help needed for potential bad service!

Here's what's going on. My boyfriend was in a fraternity for all of a month back in 2006. He was one of the founding members and paid founding dues before he quit (personal stuff, not relevant to the suck). Now, apparently, the fraternity is going into debt. That sucks for them, right?
Wrong.
They are sending emails to FORMER members (my boyfriend included) and telling them that they have to pay dues or they will be sent to collections.
Here are the emails my boyfriend has gotten so far:

Are we wrong in thinking this is not something they can do? He paid dues when he joined, but quit very soon after. He is emailing the head of Greek affairs right now, so we'll see if anything comes of that. They can't make him pay, can they? We honestly just want some advice, because we have no idea what to do. Any advice would be helpful.
