The best method is to submit an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and to post it here. The more places you report it, the better. The ban hammer email address is always monitored but may take some time based on volume, while when we have moderators on the forum, they can take action quicker (especially if it's a live lobby).
The company behind the release of “GTA 5” is encouraging players to submit reports of suspected individuals in order to rid “GTA Online” of hacking and other exploiters. A few individuals are reportedly modifying the cash payout system in order to earn an infinite amount of money quickly. The same people are apparently running around gifting million of dollars to normal players, causing a competitive imbalance.
Rockstar Games recently started to issue bans to the hackers on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. However, the company reassured fans that those who unwillingly received cash from hackers won’t be punished.
