It was clear that Grand Theft Auto 5 would change a lot for thousands of gamers and the online community would certainly take advantage of any glitches they could find, but we are not sure if fans expected the kind of cheats and hacking taking place right now. GTA V online has been plagued by cheats in a number of ways and these range from loopholes through DNS to money glitches that allow gamers to stash bags of virtual cash.

GTA V online money glitch and exploits spread – just before Christmas we touched on the GTA V money glitch returning after patch 1.08 with a new method and detailed an explanation by Rockstar in regard to banning users for using online money cheats.
Since then Rockstar has issued further comments about those that use a glitch to gain free money in GTA V online and this comes after lots of complaints. The majority of players are not happy with all the hacking and cheats in GTA V online, and Rockstar has now made it clear they will fix the “exploits” along with delivering bans for those cheating.
If you have been manipulating GTA V online, then Rockstar state you will be “punished” with “appropriate measures”. Rockstar continue to explain that if you received a lot of free GTA V online money thanks to a gift but not by manipulating the game directly yourself, then you have “nothing to fear”.
This is good news for those that have been given money by others and Rockstar even offer you the chance to have the money taken away by contacting them, although the large sums of gifted money will be taken away once Rockstar launch the upcoming GTA V online fix for money manipulation.
Everyone’s balances should be properly adjusted once GTA V online gets the pending update, but if you see any problems then share a comment below?
It will be interesting to see what happens when adjustments are made and we say this thanks to a few people having millions after being gifted large sums of cash. “I was playing GTA V online and kept getting money given to me, so now I have millions but I didn’t cheat myself it was given to me”, said one Product Reviews reader.
What do you make of all the GTA V online hacking and cheats? Did you use a money glitch or were you gifted cash, and do you feel the hacking is ruining the online economy?
The complaints can be found everywhere and users are being given massive sums in the 7 figures, but Rockstar is aware of the problem and you can expect bans along with a fix in a matter of days.
Bottom-line: If you have not been cheating then Rockstar make it clear you have nothing to worry about, but time will tell if any of these people get caught up in the ban process.
