After noticing some posts on reddit and the official forums I figured I should post this here for those that have lost anything recently and are looking for an explanation.
The latest updates from R*
"Updated 11/8/13 9:00 PM ET: We are looking into some reports about intermittent save/load issues tonight. If you are having problems saving/loading, or seem to have an out-of-date version of your Online save and/or cars/garage loading, please stay tuned to this page for updates. Updated 11/9/13 6:00 PM ET: We are continuing to look into some reports about out-of-date garages or missing cars. Yesterday's intermittent cloud save errors should no longer be happening today"
The Evil Dragon: Started a new online character to dump money, before finishing the intro missions someone gifted me a billion dollars. Thought it was a hundred million, social club says I have 1.1 Billion. Should have stuck with the 100 million I had left before.

The Evil Dragon: P.S. Deleting a character full of cash dumps money back into your account, it does NOT get rid of it. I know, first world problems. I just don't want my account blocked from online.Maybe I can fill a garage full of modded Adders and ram tank grievers?

The Evil Dragon: I e-mailed Rockstar earlier, waiting for an answer.

bigred19d: Rockstar is going to attempt a purge on modded money... They are not going to take guns, vehicles or housing away. Just gifted money. I used my 2nd character slot and bought an apartment and filled it with non modded adders, that's 6 million in cash.

The Evil Dragon: great minds think alike. I did the same, but got the Obey Tailgater from the first race and actually managed to keep it !!! So I have 9 Adders and a tailgator in a ten car garage on a level 6 character.

bigred19d: O.K. gang we have decided to put together a crew created playlist. Get to creating!!!! We as a crew will vote on submitted creations. Once we have a tight playlist involving most types of vehicles and a few WELL DONE death matches.

bigred19d: This list will be ever evolving and will be updated with improved created races. This is not mandatory at all but it would be nice if we could get as many members involved as possible.

mrharrybergeron: Hey Red, maybe let's start voting next weekend. That'll give people time to explore some TOGS created stuff this weekend and this week. Let's have a official place where people can vote on their favorites. A Google Doc will work fine.

mrharrybergeron: Or, actually, maybe people should just create a playlist called/tagged "favorite togs". Choose from your favorites first, etc. Members can always go back and change it up in-game.

mrharrybergeron: Also, do we have an official 'tag' for crew-made content? Is it #theoldguys, #oldguys, or should we just make it #togs? I know some of you would have to go back through your stuff and add tags, but it'd be easier to let crew know to tag stuff with #togs

angryniceguy: so far #theoldguys is the standard, been using it to tag photos. Also, good idea on this playlist, great way to support each other creations.

canuck613: Was there a recent purge of the membership list? My friend (PrezHotNuts) and I (Canuck613 in game) were no longer in the crew as of yesterday. We both sent requests back to be reinstated, just curious if there was a glitch on the R* end or not.

canuck613: And I'm back. Thanks folks, disregard my previous message. Glad to see we're keeping the 300 spots for active members, thanks to those who are managing the crew day-to-day. Makes it fun for those of us who have less time than they'd like to play!

Bocephusbear: So I'm in a race lobby with a bunch of randos. We choose our cars then get to the screen for betting and choosing our winning action. I start looking around the group and see that Kaiser soze is standing next to me. I of course start yelling "KAISER SOZE!
Jan 18, 2014 23:20:39 GMT -4
Bocephusbear: KAISER SOZE!" Then as I'm quoting the bit "and just like that *poof* he's gone" he fucking disappears and no one in the lobby saw it but me. Made my night.

canuck613: Haha, man, I hope that's all this guy does with that username. As soon as he's recognized, poof, logoff.
