Rockstar is calming Grand Theft Auto players down who are concerned that they may get their accounts banned through no fault of their own. The fear stems from GTA Online money hackers who are giving away large sums of (we assume ill-gotten) in-game currency to strangers, making them vulnerable to a ban by Rockstar.

 

Rockstar's position is that honest players do not need to be worried about getting banned.

 

Here's more from Rockstar's support page for the game:

Question: I was minding my own business and suddenly received a huge amount of money in GTA Online from a cheater. Am I in trouble?

Answer: 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. These sweeps are based on in-game automated detection, examination of suspicious gameplay statistics, and also manually-reviewed evidence submitted by the Community. If you were not engaged in any willful cheating or exploiting yourself, you do not need to worry about getting caught up in our work to separate out cheaters from the rest of the population.

I just collected a bounty last night. Red dot coming at me, killed him. Few hundred million. First time that ever happened. I guess I should buy a different place and more cars incase they take back the money?

Not my fault someone else cheated.

I was playing with a few friends and all of us got 2 payments of 52 million and just went crazy buying all the best cars and weapons and every plane and boat. It was a great Christmas and have not had that much fun on GTA in a while and still have everything. I am wondering what they are going to do about it.

Me and a few clan mates did the Money cheat for a while, where you sell a car repeatedly. I did it till about 800k to buy the 2nd best car. After a while one guy says "I wouldn't do it too much, or you might get detected", there was a slight pause, and a guy says ".....what?"

 

Turns out he'd gone absolutely Bananas with the money glitch, and I can only imagine he was doing this when he heard the message.

This will no doubt really kill the longevity the online component could have had... but none of you who play it (I haven't gotten to it yet) don't seem overly concerned about it.
