In an astonishing case of wage theft, a Chinese woman named Guan Yue managed to secure 16 different jobs without ever showing up for work.

Her elaborate scheme was only recently exposed when one of her employers noticed inconsistencies in her paperwork and alerted the authorities.

Guan Yue's modus operandi involved applying for multiple jobs while already being employed at other companies.

She would then send photographs to her current employers, claiming they were from client meetings, while actually interviewing for new positions.

The woman was finally apprehended during one such job interview. It is suspected that her husband, Chen Qiang, was also a part of this intricate scam.

The couple maintained meticulous records, detailing the start dates, bank accounts, and roles for each job that Yue held.

Over a span of three years, the couple amassed enough money to purchase a villa in Shanghai.

They were so committed to the scam that they never declined a job offer. If they couldn't handle another job, they would delegate it to someone else and earn a commission.

The scam began to unravel when tech company owner Liu Jian, one of Yue's employers, noticed that she had not made a single sale during her three-month probation period.

After she was let go, Jian discovered that Yue had mistakenly sent her resignation letter for another job to a work group that he was a part of. This led him to contact the police, who then uncovered the full extent of the scam, which amounted to more than 50 million yuan.

Investigations revealed that Guan Yue had multiple identity cards and numerous bank accounts where she received salaries from different companies. She, her husband, and over 50 associates have since been arrested for their involvement in this large-scale salary fraud.
