Should you worry about 'modded' money in GTA Online?

GameZone writes, "Earlier this week, Rockstar Games issued a title update for Grand Theft Auto 5's online multiplayer mode, GTA Online, in an effort to combat cheaters and exploiters in the game. The primary focus of the update was to remove the counterfeit GTA$ (money) from the game's economy. Should you be concerned?" (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

I laugh at all the people who got kicked to the cheater lobbies for having hacked/cheated money :P

Still though, This is R* pushing the Microtransactions.

Anyway, Not touched the Online since it came out... Thank goodness for that.

I'm not in the cheaters lobby, but i would think that it would be more what GTA players want. Complete chaos. When playing in normal lobbies i can't do anything with the risk of being a bad sport.

This latest move to remove all illicit cash from players bank accounts was the last straw for me and R*. They're despicable in their crusade for micro-transactions.

This is how it has affected me.

I had been playing GTAO completely legit for the first few months. I had accumulated expensive cars, and apartments, along with millions of GTA$. (all legit)

On Xmas day, I was gifted MILLIONS of GTA$. So, what did I do? I went and spent a fair chunk of it.

Now that R* has removed all the illicit cash in my bank account - I'm completely broke. Why? (cause I did have millions before Xmas)

R* counted all my spending spree against my legit cash, and took all the illicit GTA$, leaving me with nothing.

That is so messed up. Part of me believes R* did this intentionally!

It's not my fault that their broken game allowed hackers to give tons of GTA$ to legit players, and I did the only natural thing: spend some of it. And now I have less than I did before the cheaters cause this whole ordeal... Does R* care? OF COURSE NOT!! THIS GOES ALONG WITH EVERY OTHER MOVE THEY'VE MADE IN MAKING GTA$ HARD TO OBTAIN!

It's boring until the heists come and even then I don't see myself playing online long term.
