Suddenly awarded 250k

I literally went to single player for a second to get into an invite only session. As soon as I get online, I get a message saying I've been awarded 250k GTA$. Did this happen to anyone else? This came literally out of nowhere. I haven't purchased a shark card since July, and I haven't ever opened a support ticket to R* for lost money or anything similar.

I thought the random money awards had stopped for a while. It used to happen a while back, November I believe. Rockstar would deduct the amount as soon as they realised someone had been awarded by mistake. Hopefully they don't take the cash away.

Ah, interesting, thanks for the answer. I'll try not to get too attached to that money, then :p

Do you think you have to play the game today, or it's transferred to my account immediately, because I'm not at home to check?

You get one of those Black screens that say you've been awarded $250,000, then press A or X or whatever console you're on to accept it, then it gets deposited into your account. I saw the splash screen stuff after I loaded GTA again (sneaky me trying to think it was a glitch and tried to get the prompt again hehe).

i had the same thing happen to me and found these forums from you from an google search about it. seen the splash page again today as well when logged in but no additonal cash added. did you happen to buy a shark card or get shark cards free with the purchase of a new game. I'm thinking that may be why. i bought the game for a friend and kept the free shark card and I'm assuming its the extra percentage that they promised at the time.

nope, last time i bought shark cards was in 13' when i was first playing. i bought the digial copy of the game last year for black friday, it did not have a shark card bonus attached to it, it was just $30 straight up.

weird. my crew leader seems to think it may be attached to the fact they gave out 250k for christmas and some people didn't get it
