A man has officially left his job after receiving 286 times his normal salary by mistake in Chile. It has been said that the unidentified man was reportedly working for Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos (Cial) and in May, he got nearly $177,356.20 (165,398,851 Chilean pesos). However, his original monthly income is $536.15 (500,000 pesos). As soon as his employer noticed the mistake, they contacted him, and the employee apparently promised them to return the rest amount the next day.

“He was informed and clarified that this money did not correspond to the payment of any service," Chilean legal documents said, according to Chilean financial news website Diario Financiero.

But he did not come to office and also ignored the firm’s call, text, and WhatsApp. Then on June 2, he formally resigned from his position via his attorney. His employer has now reportedly taken legal action against the man. No one has reportedly been taken into custody yet.

This bizarre case has attracted a lot of eyeballs online with a user tweeting: “Good man 😄.” The second user noted: “Morally, of course, it is stealing, but I like banks to get their comeuppance once in a while.” The third one asked, “How do you 'disappear without a trace' in the modern world?” “Go into Bolivia. Also no extradition if needed,” the fourth user said.

In contrast to this, an American Burger King staffer received a minimal goodie bag for his 27 years of work without any single off day. But his daughter set up a GoFundMe for him so that he can travel to meet his grandchildren. The fundraiser reportedly received $299,021 although the goal was $270,000, leaving Kevin Ford extremely emotional. “I just can't believe this. Thank you, thank you everybody. I just want to tell everybody out there, thank you for every cent,” he said on Today show.
