you were probably owed a crowdflower settlement check. but iirc we got ours around 2015? 2016? crowdflower got sued by turkers because crowdflower got paid by requesters to create/set up/post hits along with whatever design, qualifications, things like that. I think, but it's been awhile so I could be wrong about the specifics. the gist of it was that money was supposed to go to mturk and to the workers, not to an intermediary. and it seemed like everyone was in agreement iirc, there wasn't any benefit to mturk or to the turkers that crowdflower was sort of skimming money from the requesters. makes me wonder if the requesters are paying turkprime/cr or if mturk is paying turkprime/cr? because I would feel better if it was mturk.
