A new week is upon us and so a new GTA Online weekly update is live with tons of new activities and discounted content.
If you're strap for cash, you may have thought about exploiting a few glitches to get some extra cash...well don't.
Those that are exploiting a recent glitch are finding their accounts are being wiped!
GTA Online Money Glitch Results In Accounts Being Wiped
A recent exploit was discovered that helped players to get rich quick.
The apartment garage glitch enabled players to purchase properties and quickly turn it into millions of in-game dollars.
Players would use a variety of menus to trick the game into gifting them millions of in-game dollars within minutes.
If you're a fan of what's been added to this week's update and you're eager to pick something up, we advise against doing this.
"Players found to be manipulating and abusing Property trade-ins to gain GTA$ illegitimately have had affected characters reset," Rockstar's support entry added on the August 28th August.
Some players have not taken it well...
Fuck #Gta #GTAOnline all I ever did was take advantage of a shitty little apartment glitch which everyone did. I get banned with character profile all reset and nothing happens to my mates.

One player has lost their progress from 2013!

Why has Rockstar gone for a full reset rather than just removing the money that didn't belong? Who knows. We can only assume it was to make a point and it looks like the point has been made very clear.
So, if you're thinking about it and want to avoid losing months or even years of work (like many of the above users) think again.
Unless you enjoy waiting for GTA 6's release...whenever that may be.
