    'Due me' or 'due to me'

    If I want to refer to something like a service that I have a right to or money and want to use 'due' in my sentence, what would be the correct way of saying it?
    Would it be 'services due me' or 'services due to me' ?
    'Due to me' sounds a bit like 'because of me', but 'due me' sounds... awkward too! . Help!!

    In BrE, it would certainly be "due to me".

    Pay me what is due to me.
    Pay me what is owed/owing to me.
