Rockstar Games issued a response regarding the recently-discovered cash hack in “Grand Theft Auto Online.” According to a report from Gameranx on Oct. 24, a fan emailed the company expressing his concerns about receiving $973 million from another player while playing in a public match. He pleaded with the company to remove the money in addition to suggesting that he should not be penalized.
A member of the support staff from Rockstar Games responded by stating that the development team won’t be able to remove the $973 million from the fan’s bank account. If the player do get banned or penalized, he should contact the company.

Unfortunately, we are not able to remove this money from your game. In case you will get ban or any other penalty because of that, please let us know and we will have a look into the issue.
The aforementioned hack requires a Playstation 3 with custom firmware. Players were able to easily change the cash values of payouts while robbing stores. As a result, selected individuals are spreading the wealth to unsolicited players in “Grand Theft Auto Online.”
A new patch to address the latest cash exploit has not yet been confirmed by Rockstar Games. However, it appears that the company won’t be punishing the players that unknowingly received money from the hack. You can order the product from Amazon in the following links: “GTA 5”
