$$$ from hacker, what should I do?

Recommended Posts

ITZ_CHAFIKO

Hello,

I got some money from a hacker, very recently.

It wasn't a very large sum tho, but still.

What should I do? It's my first time encountering a hacker.

Should I keep playing, or should I log off, and wait for R* to remove my money?

 

Thanks in advance

Report it to R* so they can remove ALL of your money, stats and properties because that's how dumb their anti-cheat system is. If they don't decide to ban you, that is.

 

Or be wise, create a secondary character in your account, and wash the ill-gotten money in supercar bonds.

 

Normally I'd tell you to be a good boy and report the man and the money, but as of lately with the latest ban waves who hit friends of mine who only had legit money, I say screw that.

They won't delete anything you have bought. So spend it. All of it.

 

Or if you want to "save it" spend it on a bunch of expensive cars (Scramjet, Deluxo, etc) so you can sell them later.

I probably wouldn't worry about it unless that money stays in your account for a longer period of time; as far as I know, they won't touch the properties or cars you bought with it.

Good to know. I was 'gifted' with a whackload of money a while back. 

 

Don't know what I could blow it all on when I'm on PS3,  though. 

 

It's actually taken all the fun out of playing that character.

Heh, I had over $700m back on PS3 and they never touched it. They actually never touched anything on last-gen since PC.

Spectre "2K"

from what i see from flexcreator, he takes a screenshot or a video of him getting the illegitimate money and submits a ticket to R* asking for his account to be fixed. They'll only take out the money that was dropped on you and your risk of having action taken against you will be slim to nonexistent. I'm not on PC so I can't confirm this, but i've seen it in a couple of his videos. Just explain the situation and keep it polite enough

U know, I'm not really worried about the ban itself. I'm worried about them deleting my character.

I've wasted countless sleepless nights faming for cool vehicles and stuff, just to be gone, like that?

I hate their system... It just auto delete your character...

Invest it in properties that you had your eye on now. Get all the major properties and upgrades out of the way then buy multiple high end/expensive cars (Deluxo, Scramjet, Vigilante) with anything left over. Why? Because the cars may be resalable, but at 50% of their purchase price. 

 

Why lose 50% when you can get 100% of the value now on stuff you would have bought eventually anyway?

 

From my own experience, I was hovering around the $4 million mark selling product from my bunker and Nightclub, I'd made 10's of millions but would strategically invest in another business as the finances became available. Saw how easy and at the time, unchecked the Lester glitch was so I gave that a go.

 

I stopped when I was at $27 million and bought (and upgraded) a facility, office and IE garage then a Deluxo, scramjet and a Vigilante. As I knew a wipe was coming, I didn't go out of my way to make any money for the next week or so and survived the wipe to $0 only losing the $400K I had on me.

 

Once R* was "happy", I sold the Scramjet and Vigilante and I was back up to $6 million within a day. 

 

At the end, I had all the businesses I wanted, was up $2 million over where I was when I started and now I'm back to grinding my way past the $20 million mark. 

 

The way I see it, no matter what you do, your account will be flagged for "Receiving modded money" so, might as well use it while you can. Then play good and you'll be cool.

So total ban of the account is not likely, in your opinion / experience? Just a money wipe? 

 

(I realize this is not a guarantee you're making on behalf of the Mother Company)

If it's modded money you picked up, then they'll likely just wipe it from your account, assuming that money is present on your account for quite some time.

 

On the other hand, if it was directly deposited to you via Recovery options, will very likely result in your account being flagged for R* to look into.

On PS3 literally nothing is going to happen. At all. I'd be insanely surprised if they even took the money.

From what I've seen on this and other sites discussing modded/glitched money, no ban just a wipe assuming its a first time offence.

Thank you, and you, and you. And the OP for asking in the first place. And these forums for being here. And my producer, for believing in me. Even if Beyoncé's album is better.

@ITZ_CHAFIKO, that's their default response to a ticket requesting for money removal. If you find yourself still bothered by what happened after this, here's the video that Spectre mentioned above:

 

 

I figure that it's an interesting and worthwhile watch for any PC player to watch this and withdraw their own conclusions on what to do under this situation. Flex knows his stuff.

 

While I've never went above the initial bot response with support, this will be the approach I'll be taking in the future in case I have my account manipulated by a cheater.

Are you sure about that it was a bot?

Looked pretty real to me, here:

@ITZ_CHAFIKO, aah, my apologies. Seems like you actually chatted with support. If you specified that earlier, I'm sorry but I may have missed it.

 

As for embedding pics, Imgur has direct links which will allow you to do that. The one you have there is for the site itself.
