Rockstar is taking aim at GTA Online Cheaters by removing the counterfeit GTA$ from the game and penalizing those who have exploited the online economy. A message sent over from Rockstar claims that they will be taking action against players who engaged in using cheats and exploits, giving those players in-game penalties at their discretion.
For those that came into cash but did not exploit the game, their cash will be taken away as well, but will face no in-game disciplinary action.
Rockstar is asking for players to band together and inform them when they see activity in the online game, by using the in-game reporting functionality.
These penalities and fixes should be in place as part of yesterday’s maintenance period for the GTA V.
