So, I just logged in, and when I joined the lobby, I received an alert with the message Congratulations, you have been awarded 4000000$. I have no idea why or how, I didn't do any specific events. The only thing which "happened" was that I have 400 hours on GTA V on steam since yesterday.

Could that be the reason? Or is there some kind of event I missed? Or could this be done by a hacker?

  • Did you buy any shark card?

  • @Alex I received a 8 million $ shark card from my brother for christmas. Bit early tho, but I already received that money. So why would I get another 4 million? I didn't buy any shark cards earlier except one for 250k in the beginning. Dec 22, 2016 at 15:21

You got the money as a "gift" for buying shark cards. The more you buy, the more they give you for free as an extra.

  • Yesterday I've been "Congratulations, you've been awarded 250,000" and I never bought any shark card.
