Apparently, the currency hacking in GTA V has gotten SO out of control, that cheaters are randomly gifting innocent players with massive amounts of currency, in hopes of getting them banned.
GTA V MoneyHackers Attempt To Have Innocent Players Banned
Rockstar Support is attempting to respond to as many people as they can about the GTA Online currency hacking that has been sweeping across the popular game. There have not been any more updates since Tuesday, but from what we can tell, Rockstar’s stance remains the same. Hackers are, allegedly, giving players unsolicited wads of in-game currency, in an attempt to make recipients vulnerable for game bans. Since Tuesday, Rockstar has been adamant that honest players should not worry, saying:
Question: I was minding my own business and suddenly received a huge amount of money in GTA Online from a cheater. Am I in trouble?
Answer: To keep the gameplay environment as fair as possible for legitimate players, we routinely do sweeps to separate out cheaters and modders, and to reverse any illegitimate transactions. These sweeps are based on in-game automated detection, examination of suspicious gameplay statistics, and also manually-reviewed evidence submitted by the Community. If you were not engaged in any willful cheating or exploiting yourself, you do not need to worry about getting caught up in our work to separate out cheaters from the rest of the population.
