It’s always nice to see a little extra in your paycheck, but one employee at a Chilean company got the pay bump of a lifetime last month.
The unnamed worker at Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos (Cial), which makes cold cuts, normally received a paycheck of roughly 500,000 Chilean pesos (about $555) direct-deposited to his account. In the most recent pay period on May 30, though, a screwup in the company’s HR department resulted in him getting a check for $165,398,851 (a whopping $183,593), reports Diario Financiero, a Santiago-based newspaper.
He took the matter to a manager to report the overpayment, which is when the HR error was discovered. The company then told him to go to his bank to initiate the return of the money. He promised to go there the next day. And that’s exactly what he did.
What he didn’t do, however, was return the money. And after three days of calls and WhatsApp messages, the company got a message from a lawyer representing the worker, offering his resignation.
Since then, no one at the company has heard from the worker.
The company has filed a complaint charging the worker with misappropriation of funds, in hopes of recovering some of the lost money, but so far there have been no arrests.
While a windfall like that would be huge in any country, it’s especially notable in Chile, where the average worker takes home roughly $1,000 U.S. per month, according to Take-Profit.org.

I’m rooting for him. I hope he lives a long life and this is attributed to “Grandpa’s crazy imagination” when he tells the story to his grandkids.

$180k / 330 = $545.45 in case you were wondering
203 level 2 jchodes · 1 day ago
~28 years worth of pay in a lump? I’d run with that. For context if I got 330x monthly pay that would be nearly 1.5 million. I’d run with that.

In Chile for full completeness, average monthly wage is $2000 (as far as I can find)

How does this work legally, if he doesnt want to give the money back what happens?

Who knows what the laws are in Chile, but in Canada/US if you knowingly take money that is mistakenly deposited into your account it is theft.

Well, the resignation letter came via his attorney so you gotta figure he’s getting legal advice on the matter.

My favorite part of this is that he formally resigned before ghosting with their money.

I hope they get away. Billionaires get away with stealing and not paying taxes 24/7.
126 level 2 maxToTheJ · 1 day ago
Employers get away with wage theft and the police never do anything about and nobody seems assigned to it. When stuff like this happens there is always someone assigned to it.

They probably won’t.
24 level 1 HandHoldingClub · 1 day ago
I have a feeling he won't run very far.
I once had like $50k show up in my checking that wasn't supposed to be there. My friend told me to cash it and close the account ASAP and I was like no lmao. They are obviously going to be able to trace it to me. And he was like "it's not illegal!" - like I would trust him on that because he most definitely isn't a lawyer or banker!
They ended up pulling the money anyway so I have a feeling any of that money I used would still be mine because they'd pull out the $50k. Or when I went to close my account they would notice. OR if I did successfully close it they would still come after me for the money one way or another.
14 level 2 Cheeky_Star · 1 day ago
You have to pay it back. Even if they didn’t pull it. And if your spend it it’s worst as the company can make the court force you to pay it back. On the bright side, it becomes a risk free loan.. My company mistakenly paid an ex-warehouse worker 30k. He reached out to ask about it and That was it .. never heard from her again. That’s the miracle she was praying for I guess.

What I find interesting about the story is that he hired a lawyer to hand in his resignation. So he clearly received legal advice and determined that he might have a right to keep the money.

A worker in Chile submitted his resignation and could not be found after his job accidentally paid him about 330 times his salary because of a payroll error, according to reports.
The worker, a dispatch assistant at cold meats manufacturer Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos, received a paycheck of 165,398,851 Chilean pesos, or $180,418, for the month of May. He was only supposed to be paid about 500,000 Chilean pesos, or $545.
The worker initially alerted his manager of the massive overpayment, according to local media outlet Diario Financiero.

The manager would then report the issue to human resources, who asked the worker to go to his bank and return the extra money.
