Here at GTA 5 Cheats we’ve been receiving more and more reports of people unhappy with the large amount of hacking currently occurring in GTA Online. We guess that Rockstar Games is getting the message too with it recently making the following comment on the latest post to its official blog.
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 gifted a large sum of money or collected a large bounty, the money you’ve received will be removed once our upcoming fix is in place.
Furthermore, if you encounter someone that is taking advantage of exploits in your GTA Online session, you can alert us directly by using the in-game reporting functionality. In the Pause menu, under the Online tab, select Players and scroll to the offending player. From there, select Report and choose Exploits from the violation options. We appreciate the community’s support and understanding as we work to address these issues and apologize for all inconvenience caused.
As stated, they are working on a fix that will remove from the GTA Online economy, completely, any and all GTA$ that has been gained using nefarious means. This means if you used certain exploits yourself, or were gifted a large amount of cash, then you can expect to lose it. Rockstar also says that it will be punishing those who used exploits only, and NOT anyone who simply received a gift.
This is obviously a big task for Rockstar and it has been clearly struggling to stay on top of all the exploits that are released (every new patch seems to cover up and old one while a new one is also found). How long this new initiative might take to implement is unknown but GTA 5 Cheats will definitely keep you updated.
