You can't be punished for a gift. This has happened to many people. 3 people I know of and I have been in 2 lobbies where billion dollar bounties were present. It's the games fault for only allowing 9k bounties on people .. of course people are going to want to put real large bounties on others at some point.. mind you Billions = hacking but still I should be able to put a custom 50k bounty on someone. Sorry for side topic ranting.

@keefyboooo I would report the player and request R* to remove the money

Why would you report someone for bestowing a gift? It's not like the player was in an invisible tank and was spawn killing the OP - no, he just gave him a harmless gift. If the OP was generally worried about the large sum of money he would not have gone over to where the large bounties were hiding - he would have left the lobby. Instead he got more than he bargained for as he didn't even need to complete the bounty.

To the OP - you're gonna get a few a members with badges beside their usernames telling you to start another account and start spam buying Adders..I ask why should you waste your actual real life time by doing this when you can just now enjoy the game and not have to worry about the constant nerfing of payouts and increasing costs of in game activities (10k/crew icon on clothing every time, ect)...

You will now be the most popular person in your crew and you can make friends with entire lobbies by giving away built cars without trackers/insurance. It's a fun way to play the game and can instantly turn a lobby of killers into a neutral non threatening game experience. Nice change of pace for late at night.

I havent tried this, but if you goto your bank then does it display who transferred the money? Use the phone, goto money & services, then Maze bank, then look for transactions. Id report it anyway incase R* can track it

@orthow

some people might want to earn money legitimately

Why don't you try it before copy/pasting it all over the place here mr. extremely helpful community member? And no this information is not displayed there.

You may want to check if the information you're providing is in fact helpful before posting it. Just a thought :)

Same thing happened to me, but it wasn't shared, since I personally claimed the bounty, also like my friend, so its under "Jobs", and they say "Shared" money from a hacker you're fine but IDK bout claiming a hacked bounty from a hacker that shows up under "Jobs"
