Forbes: "So, Vic, you wanna hear about a little plan that is going to make us three very rich?"
Vic: "What's the risk?"
Forbes: "Let me put it like this: You will not be handling any drugs. All I need you to do is keep the cops busy while Lance and I steal some merch off the scum that brought it into this country."
Bryan Forbes explains his plan to Victor and Lance Vance

Money for Nothing is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, given to protagonist Victor Vance by Lance's player Bryan Forbes from Bryan's apartment in Downtown, Vice City


Vic drops by Bryan Forbes' apartment and sees him and Lance. The trio after an argument decide to go out and take a decoy van. After arriving at the warehouse, Forbes and Lance go to the actual van with the drugs while Vic drives the decoy van and lead the cops away from them. Upon reaching the destination, Vic loses the wanted levels and mission is completed.

Post mission pager message

Lance Vance: I don't trust Forbes, man. Meet me up at the Arena...


The reward for this mission is $1,500. The mission Caught as an Act is unlocked, however it's only made available if Havana Good Time is completed.


  • The name of the mission may refer to the song Money For Nothing, by Dire Straits.
  • There's a glitch in the PS2 version where no police cars or Cheetahs will appear during the decoy chase, the only vehicle it will spawn is the Police Maverick.
  • On this mission it is possible to reach 6 star wanted levels, in spite the 6 star wanted level is still locked by the time of this mission, therefore, it is possible to obtain the Rhino earlier in the game.
