"The Fleeca card is the high-interest loan that keeps on giving."
― Description at LCN.com.

Fleeca is a banking and credit card company featured across the HD Universe. The player can buy stocks from them on the Lcn-exchange.com website in Grand Theft Auto V.

AppearancesEdit

GTA IVEdit

Fleeca has three radio ads which includes its slogan "Fleeca, it's time to start paying". In the Public Liberty Radio program The Séance, a guest on the show gives her Fleeca card number over the air, whereupon the host, Beatrix Fontaine, says that her card will be "very secure." In TW@ internet cafes and in many other stores in the city, Fleeca credit cards are accepted. There's also a Fleeca company building in The Exchange, Algonquin.

Russian players who pre-ordered GTA IV received a Niko Bellic Fleeca card with his name, serial no., length of validity and date of commission.[1]

GTA Chinatown WarsEdit

Though there are no ads in the radio stations in GTA Chinatown Wars, Fleeca ads can be seen throughout the city, with the same image as in GTA IV.

GTA V and GTA OnlineEdit

In GTA V, along with offering credit cards, Fleeca now operates a series of physical banks named Fleeca Bank around San Andreas. The banks are a rather odd addition as they have a fully modelled interior with pedestrians often waiting in line but no cashiers or employees are to be found. The banks are not featured in any missions and the vaults cannot be opened.

In GTA Online, however, The Fleeca Bank branch in Great Ocean Highway is the main target during the Fleeca Job heist. Lester says that this branch is a good target because it got some bonds guarded in deposit boxes that are being hidden from the taxman, so no one will report missing and also the light security. The crew first scope the bank to take as much information as they can, steal an Kuruma to assist in the getaway and finale steal the bank.

It is possible to glitch into the Fleeca banks using the phone glitch and standing in a certain place. There is a safe, although the player cannot open it with explosives, melee, or bullets, and the door behind the counter is locked so it's not possible to get into that area.

LocationsEdit

In GTA IV, there is only one branch within Liberty City. In GTA V, however, five branches are located in Los Santos itself while two are outside the city:

InfluenceEdit

It appears that Fleeca is based on the real world VISA credit card although the logo seems to bear similarities to the real world e-commerce company Neteller.
