Be bloody careful about freemode games! Earlier today a hacker stole my five hundred thousand. Just poof and it is gone! Asking rockstar support but we all know how they operate so not exactly having big hopes here.
Note that this money was drained from my bank account but my wallet was left alone, so that might be a way to safeguard yourself. But no promises.
Observe the healthcare and bail expense.April 17, 2017 at 6:38 pm #5333jeffreyParticipant
Are you sure that was today? This has been going arount a few days and as far as i know, rockstar knows about this and temporary set the healthcare & bail multiplier to 0. That should mean that hackers should only be able to substract 0 dollars from you account, which doesn’t do shit…
This should not be happening anymore… I’m confusedApril 17, 2017 at 7:18 pm #5334RoofstoneParticipant
It happened right when I logged on at 10:20 AM (ish).April 17, 2017 at 9:55 pm #5335lorschParticipant
Sry to see that happened to you, hope you get it back asap! Best right now would be to only play with friends and starting jobs from an invite session so you don’t get back in public. Firewall rules for public sessions. I’m still lucky this hasn’t happened to me, haven’t been that careful all the time…April 17, 2017 at 10:36 pm #5336mathilyaParticipant
I saw that on Discord chat – myst posted it 2 days ago. Sorry to hear that – I thought public sessions always helped in meeting new players, making GTA Online a big community. Unfortunately, recent situation will probably make people more distrustful. Especially, if money is drained from bank account – meant to make money safe but in this case, it makes it even more exposed. Pity 🙁April 18, 2017 at 4:34 pm #5337jeffreyParticipant
Men, I really thought they fixed this. Fuckin rockstar, I’m really disappointed right now 🙁April 18, 2017 at 8:39 pm #5341lorschParticipant
On a more positive note, the current event week is 2x $ and RP on contact missions – seeems like a good way to avoid public sessions right now.April 19, 2017 at 10:15 pm #5342mathilyaParticipant
Been scrolling GEHT wall on Social Club – one of their members (commissioner, I think) got his rank dropped to 60, because of this stupid mod, not mentioning about money drain. Invite only sessions might become even bigger treasure then, so as firewall settings. I saw a video on YouTube about this mod – I am still wondering why it has not been reported/deleted yet.
I am going to bump lorsch’s thread too – can be useful as never before.April 20, 2017 at 2:56 pm #5344mattiejasKeymaster
Oh this is absolutely dreadful. I’m sorry this happened to you, roof, and to anyone else who’s fallen victim to these hackers. Thanks for making everyone here aware about this scheme. I guess I’ll be sticking to invite-only for a while…
