GTA V money glitch ban explanation

As we told you earlier on this week, Rockstar has now released the GTA V 1.08 update. Rockstar had initially prevented users from exploiting a glitch to make unlimited cash, but it appears that an even bigger problem has emerged due to those with modded consoles.

As a result, a GTA V 1.08 money glitch is still possible in the game – with modded users setting up online lobbies, and then distributing this ‘dirty’ money with those that join the lobby, no questions asked.

You only need to head to our previous article here, to see the sheer amount of GTA V players on PS3 and Xbox 360 who are keen on gaining easy GTA V money in this way. It’s a difficult situation and has obviously divided the GTA V community somewhat.

Rockstar has made it hard to earn money legitimately, so players have become desperate. Getting money from these modded lobbies though is against Rockstar’s policy as you may have guessed, and we’ve now started to see the developer take action.

We have noticed that Rockstar has issued a statement on their support website, specifically explaining their reasons for banning users which they have spotted using this new method to make money in the game.

To pick out one quote from their website:

“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.”

Consider that a warning we think. While we can understand that it is now becoming very difficult to make money in the game, getting free money from a modded user is a risky business.

Let us know what you think of this. Has Rockstar banned your account already from GTA Online as a result of joining these modded lobbies?

Is your ban a permanent or temporary one?

Can they really ban us? I mean all the DNS server glitch is just changing network settings. I don’t think they can ban us just for that. That’s almost like changing your Wi-Fi conneciton.

I think it would be unfair to ban people who joined these lobbies. nobody knows if they are going to join a modded lobby.when someone gives you 500 million you cant just ignore it.i myself have been given lots of money fro modders but what can I do? give me one reason on why I should be banned.i didn’t mod or hack. I agree with banning the modders as they intentionally are hacking.but the people who they give money to should be left alone.if rockstart ban every person that was given money then it would take the population of this… Read more »

you need money to have fun online. you cant do anything without being considered a bad sport. i don’t care about everyone having great cars and what not. people who hack there level on the other hand need to be banned. leveling up is fun and isn’t hard unlike obtaining a nice sum of money legitimately. i was given 115 million by a guy who was giving it out in the lobby i joined after asking him for some. Rockstar should fix this glitch, ban the people who have hacked their level and then focus on improving the game with… Read more »

I think a majority of the online sessions that are being hosted are modded. I played a random session then a few mins later I received a message that I was given 200 million. I don’t feel bad at all because I have put time and real money into this game just to have it all gone and all rockstar would say is “well were sorry but we can’t replicate the bug that you experienced” no refund nothing just a big go f*^% yourself!

Maybe if they’d allow us to earn money a little easier then we wouldn’t exploit this. Think about your god damn consumers you greedy pigs, you earn a billion from this game and then make it as hard as F*** so obviously people are going to exploit mods.

Im a hacker & no u dont need to be in a modded xbox lobby to end up with someone giving u a bunch of cash or a way high bounty. I dont mod lobbies, I just change the default open lobby server settings to only change things for me. But in doing so I can give a % of what I get after robbing a store. & no I dont hand out billions. I give just under 2 million every 5% I hand out. That way no red flags to R*. Im not trying to get gamers banned or… Read more »

I would love some money. I have been trying for days and days to earn enough to buy the Monroe. I have about $200,000 right now. If anyone needs to get rid of a few 100 million just let me know. PSN: ChronicRyderNRA
I have never seen anyone give out billions or put billions on a bounty. A few days ago somebody gave me $70 out of the blue but that is it. If the game had gas as a requirement I could of filled up my Sandking with $70. LOL

Guys, you WILL NOT get banned for receiving money from somebody else. They’re only after the people who are giving it out (This is what they themselves have said). If you have received any money, feel free to spend it as you wish, if you don’t want it, create a new character, withdraw all the money to that character, and swap back to your original.

I was just playing a race, after I finished the race I spawned in a lobby with a cheater in it, he sent me 1billion, I emailed rockstar right away let’s hope I don’t get banned

Bunch of bull, the only way to avoid getting money from these hackers is to not play, I’m a level 87 and have never cheated, someone gives me free money and I get banned, seems every lobby is a hack lobby now. Please tell me what I did wrong, Nothing, did I ask for money no, did I report and message rock star right after yes I did

I received 103 million from an annon donor, then proceeded to claim a bounty of 2 billion, that’s right BILLION dollars, from 2 dudes trying to cheat. No mods, no cheater lobby..just ganked.

I blame Rockstar for not putting the unlimited money glitch in the first place and taking away all the fun. That’s the reason people do all these money glitches. San Andreas >>>>>>>>>>> GTA V

Trust me leveling up in this game is worth way more then any in game currency. All the money in Gta Online is only good for getting your first apartment and 10 car garage. Besides that I’d be more concerned for Rockstar’s future fanbase which is shrinking by the second, and its all because they want to play virtual God in Los Santos.

I hope all you cheaters and modders burn in hell. And, of course, this is just one very good reason why there will NEVER be a PC version. You hacks don’t deserve it, and you’ll never get it.

I Have been a recipient of the money, And will say right now nothing better happen to me because of this. It wasn’t my fault i received it.. There game isn’t even stopping them. The person GAVE ME cash, That option SHOULD be locked, But since it is just “locked” modders can code and script using that.

Everyone should start blaming the makers and the developers of the game. How is it that all those glitch happen to be in the game in the first place, from money glitch to duplication ETC. Don’t blame the players for finding them and them wanting to ban them for using it. Blame the makers and developers for leaving them in the game, and they can’t say that they did not program it into the game, it’s part of the game program. They cam patch it all they want, players that know about programs are going to keep finding ways around… Read more »
