I had just logged on and went in my own private server. I was in my garage for a few minutes and didn't even go out yet to commit any crimes. And I get a text saying that an unknown person has put a $1000 bounty on me. How is that even possible? I haven't even been on the game in 2 days, so how would someone even remember me from a previous game. A little while later still in my private lobby another unknown person put a $1000 bounty on me. Then increased it to $3000. So what the heck is going on here?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well that makes sense for the second and third bounty. But the first one I didn't even streal a car yet. I'm innocent I tells ya! Someone framed me!
If you had spent any time at all in a public lobby prior to the first bounty, someone could have put it on you. Maybe you forgot about it? I know that you have to spend a full 48 minutes in game before you can escape it. So even if you quit the game and go back to it a couple days later, that bounty will still be there.
I was in solo, jacked some dude's car and shortly after got a text along the lines of: "You jacked my car *expletive*, you're gonna pay!"
Now I have a $3,000 bounty on me. Only question is... who's gonna collect?
