Rockstar Games is confident that this new fix will remove all current infinite money glitches, as well are prevent future GTA Online and GTA 5 infinite money exploits. Find Rockstar’s full comment below:
In regards to reports of hacking and cheating in Grand Theft Auto Online, we are working on a fix that will remove any GTA$ gained through these blatant exploits, as well as prevent this from happening in the future. We'll also be taking appropriate measures very soon to punish anyone that we've discovered manipulating GTA Online in this manner (as we've stated previously, players who have received large sums of GTA$ but not engaged in any game manipulating through exploits can rest assured knowing they have nothing to fear).
If you have been playing GTA Online and received large sums of GTA$, but did not perform in any game manipulation, Rockstar has disclosed that those players will not be punished. However, if they choose to, any gifted money can be removed from your account by submitting a request to Rockstar Support. Find the company’s full comment below:
If you have been gifted a large sum of money or collected a large bounty and would like to have the money removed from your account immediately, you can submit a request to Rockstar Support to have your balance properly adjusted. Otherwise, the money you've been gifted will be removed once our upcoming fix is in place.
