The employee resigned and went out of reach after he received 165,398,851 Chilean pesos (R2, 9 million) instead of 500,000 Chilean pesos (R9 000).

That payroll blunder essentially paid the employee of cold meats manufacturer CIAL Alimentos approximately 330 times his salary.

The deputy manager reported the error to the human resources department where the employee was requested to go to his bank to initiate the return of the excess funds.

He promised to go the next day, but that would be the last they saw or heard from him as he did not return the money and ignored calls and WhatsApp messages from the employer.

The silence was followed by a resignation letter sent via the employee's attorney, then everything about him went silent.

CIAL Alimentos has since filed a criminal complaint against the worker although there has been no sighting or arrest made.

In the complaint, the company is accusing the former employee of misappropriating funds.
