A representative of Rockstar Games posted a response in regards to concerns that the company is banning “GTA Online” players that unwillingly received large amounts of in-game currency from exploiters using mods and glitches to acquire an infinite amount of cash. According to a response from the official Rockstar Support page on Dec. 17, those that are not willfully cheating or exploiting should not be worry about being banned.

The Rockstar Games representative confirmed that routine sweeps are occurring in order to remove the cheaters and modders in addition to reversing “illegitimate transactions.” The method uses both automated and manual techniques to determine if someone is partaking in any unlawful activities. You can check out a few screenshots of “GTA Online” in the slideshow to the left of this article and the full response from the Rockstar Support page below:

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.

“GTA Online” launched with numerous glitches that enable players the ability to duplicate and resell vehicles. Modders were also able to change the value of cash payouts. As a result, an unbalanced economy was created for the multiplayer mode of “GTA 5” as exploiters were giving away the illegitimate money to other unwilling players.

Rockstar Games seem to have the situation under control as the recent patches plugged up the exploits while the company is also starting to ban those who took advantage of the infinite money glitches and mods.
