He should only have been paid around £450 last month.
But rather than pay the company back, he took the money and ran – far away, never to be seen or heard from again.
According to local news outlet Diario Financiero, he did actually report the overpayment to his manager, who took it to HR.
Initially, when they told him to return the money, he agreed to do so.
He told them that he would go to the bank to start the chargeback the next day.
But, while he did go to the bank, he actually took the money – and disappeared.
His employers tried to get hold of him over the next three days, but what they got in return was a message from a lawyer offering his resignation.
The company never got a chance to accept or deny the resignation, however, as the man has not responded to any message.
A complaint has been filed with law officials, charging the man with misappropriation of funds, but no arrests have been made because they can't find the man to do so.

According to the company's website, it specialises in making pre-packaged processed meat products from three of the country's main makers – La Preferida, San Jorge and Winter.
