- In Chile, he went to the ATM and saw that the bank had deposited no less than 186,000 dollars in his account, when in reality he charges the equivalent of about 570 dollars per month.
- First, he reported it to the human resources of the company where he works, from where the transfer originated.
- Two days later, he repented, resigned, and no one else has seen him. The firm initiated a criminal action against him.
An employee of a food factory in Chile received a millionaire transfer and does not want to return it.
The company, by mistake, deposited 165 million Chilean pesos, about 186 thousand dollars, in his bank account. The employee, when he saw the money in the balance, decided to quit and find a lawyer to help him keep the money.
It all started in the human resources area of the Food Industrial Consortium (Cial), a company that has under its control important Chilean brands such as San Jorge, La Preferida and Winter.
It is the largest company of cecinas (a type of dehydrated meat of Spanish origin) in Chile.
In the procedure for transferring salaries to employees for the month of May, there was a problem that ended with a millionaire deposit to whom it did not belong.
This is detailed in the same way in a criminal complaint initiated by the worker in whose account the money appeared that should be destined for another destination.
Bank deposits money by mistake and the employee disappears
according to account Financial Journalon May 30, one of the company employees with the position of dispatch manager assistant (with a salary of about 510 thousand Chilean pesos, about 570 dollars) went to Human Resources to say that there was an error in the payment of his salary: he had been overpaid.
Thus it was discovered, according to what is recorded in the file, that the company had transferred him 165.3 million pesos more than his share.
Given this, the employee was told that he had to go to the bank to generate what is called in Chile a “voucher” in the name of Cial.
The worker said he was going to go, but never appeared.
Two days later, the worker, along with a lawyer, submitted a letter of resignation and never returned.
Now the company denounces him for the crime of misappropriation.
In Chile, misappropriation is included in the Penal Code and sanctions “those who, to the detriment of another, appropriate or divert money, effects or any other movable thing that they have received in deposit, commission or administration.”
Before the Chilean justice, the company considers that it was an error (by Human Resources and the bank) and that that does not give the employee the right to keep the money.
