Community Question? and Rockstar

I'm scared guys I don't know if when I get back on xbox I will be banned or not I know rockstar took all these precautions to root out the cheaters but I hope I didn't fall into the category of anything relating: I am a role-player I don't do online matches everything I do is private with my crew but if rockstar deemed it necessary to ban me how do I go about apologizing and restarting my account or starting over or something is there a way to check before I go online and be either disappointing or very happy i don't know I am scared rockstar.

What did you do? Have you modded or hacked? If you've been given the money via bounty or player don't worry because you won't be banned. Everything you buy with modded money (that is gifted to you) will stay in your account/garage/clothes/Pegasus etc. If you hacked or modded however, you may get put into a cheaters pool or banned altogether.

Go online. If your banned, your banned. If your not, your not.
If you cheated, you deserve it, if you didn't.. why are you scared?

Rockstar does not ban innocent people. If you are you probably went and did the dns thing. As such i have no sympathy for you.

OK everyone I did not hack for my money I am simply scared because their are people close to me who are banned, and I don't want their problem to rub off on me if you all are correct I should have nothing to worry about yet the paranoia stays so I guess I will have to figure it out myself.

You will not get banned. If you didn't hack or mod then you are fine. If you received modded money from someone else, it still doesn't matter. Your friends must have hacked for their cash. If not, I suggest they submit a ticket.

Just to clarify, you get banned for changing your DNS or hacking and you get sent to the cheater pool for sharing hacked money using the share function and/or using the LSC glitch. If you did neither of those things, there is nothing to worry about. If you did, you deserve your punishment.

That's actually false. I myself did no hacking/modding/DNS crap. When I called RockStar about my ban after having received $3B from a modder, they told me I had 187 violations including sharing modded money and setting my RP boost to 1Bx. This is completely false (had I done that I'm sure I'd be far above level 121). Since the DNS setting on my PS3 is automatic, it is set randomly whenever I log into PSN (as confirmed by RockStar), yet RockStar refuses to believe that a) you could be spawned into a room with a DNS that could be modded and the effects could be transferred to you, and b) that they can make a mistake despite the hundreds of examples where they have.

They also treat you like absolute garbage when you call and are completely unwilling to listen to a thing you say or even furnish examples of your violations.
