Didn't take long.

I find it interesting how they patch that so fast, but you can still drop money on people.

Yeah it's probably something "complex" to sort out, I dunno... spawning entities (cars, ped models, objects) will always be a thing I guess, so really there needs to be a check of whether they have some non-server applied monetary value or something. 
I have no idea really on that one.

Nice! that sh*t is scary & pretty common way cheaters try to get people auto-banned.

The problem with money drops is just that there are many ways in which you can 'pick up' money legitimately when playing free-mode (from a dead npc/player, from a store, from a bounty, from a event, trough a mugger, from impromptu race, etc etc) They tried to deal with money drops several times now (put a limit on how much you can gain in a certain time limit, remove the prop that cheaters used to use for money drops, etc) and each time cheaters found a work around, its just one of those classic back-and-forth between cheaters and (the few) people trying to prevent cheaters. The only way they could really fix this is make it so props cant have both a money value and 'pick-up-able' flag, but that directly translates to nobody dropping money when they die, not being able to pick up the bag from robbing a store, etc. And while those 'legit drops' are completely irrelevant to most players these days, its still a pretty big core game-play element, so they simply cant be so 'direct' in patching money drops that they could just remove the feature entirely.

Remember seeing these messages very occasionally in the past too (like once every few months) but just now loaded into a freemode session and within 5 minutes i saw the below for 3 different players :O

Some mod menus are currently going through a "wave of bans". Hundreds of people reporting they've recently received suspensions or permanent bans. 

 

Also, there's workarounds for the RP dropping method, as some modders just changed the cards to the figurines or other collectables.

Seems these scumbags have resulted to spamming messages about their mod menus via Discord. For obvious reasons, I've blocked the URL

Ahh Discord will actually sort that out when people are using their platform to advertise for game modding services etc if you report them with the proper IDs and whatever. Their reporting system is a little better than Rockstar's - at least you know they'll be reviewed by a human being. 
Discord also has a setting in Privacy to prevent people who aren't on your friends list, or in mutual servers from sending you messages, and that can also be set on a server-by-server basis. Rockstar should actually copy that idea into GTA Online - knowing that I've been on the receiving end of message spam a few times...

EDITED: 

I should also mention that RP drops are still working fine so uhh... GG I guess.
