In the latest bizarre, a Chilean man has disappeared after his company credited an amount of 286 times his salary. While the prospect of being accidentally credited more than your compensation amount can sound lucrative, in most cases, you would have to either return the amount or make future adjustments when your company realizes the goof up.
The man worked at Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos (Cial), one of the largest producers of cold cuts in Chile. The company accidentally paid the employee 165,398,851 Chilean pesos (Rs 1.42 crore), instead of the 500,000 pesos (Rs 43,000) he was entitled to, according to local media.
A man who was accidentally paid 286 times his salary last month has resigned from the company and disappeared after promising his employer that he would return the amount that was paid in excess.
In May, the company accidentally paid around Rs 1.42 crore ( 165,398,851 Chilean pesos) to the employee instead of Rs 43,000 (500,000 pesos), which is his monthly salary. When the company’s management checked their records, they found the error.
The company attempted to contact the employee after the bank failed to notify them of a refund, but their messages went unanswered. Later, the man called, saying he overslept and would go to the bank. However, when the company didn’t receive the amount back from the employee, they tried to reach out to the man and get an update. But there was no communication. Later, the man got in touch with the company saying he would visit the bank soon. But on June 2, the man submitted his resignation.
Now recent reports reveal that the man has disappeared. In order to retrieve their money, the company reached out to the officials and has taken legal action against the employee.
