Meet Tyler Hallberg.
As the webmaster of www.officialhalo3cheats.com there is an offer to submit cheats for cash – when the game comes out on September 25th, 2007.
Already getting offers for the Beta release, it was interesting to see Tyler’s email – below is the entire sequence of emails that took place.

how bad are you wanting cheats for this game? i have the game and have found about 20 cheats for it.

When you say cheats, are you talking about glitches or superjumps? My intention is to have THE site on the web for all things like this for Halo 3.
As I mentioned on the site, anything in the beta may or may not be in the shipped version of the game, but if you have any I would certainly be interested.
When the site goes live, there will be different levels of payment, all depending on the cheat – i.e. very
hard easter egg vs commonly known superjump, etc…
Thanks for the inquiry!

Are you interested in revealing your information, and what would you want?
Jun 18, 2007 1:11 AM
well that took you a while to get back to me. i dont reveal anything. i have had some pretty nice offers
from other sources for what i have. along with the final release CD. what do you have to offer?
Jun 19, 2007 4:31 PM
I did reply on 5/30/2007, you never responded.
Anyways, that’s in the past. I have no idea of what type of person you are and/or what your needs are.
Some people want money, some people want services. I have many different things to offer, so you need to set the price and I will decide if I think it’s worth it.

well you have no need to get cocky with me. and for that im not
offering my services to you anymore. thanks anyways
Is this kid legit? Doing a Google search in Tyler Hallberg doesn’t get much. But do the same search on Yahoo, and you get a very interesting post on Craigslist (now expired) – but here is the cache:
Well my name is Tyler. I am a sophomore at Emerald Ridge High School. … Tyler Hallberg. . Location: puyallup …
this is all that is available, but there is another post on Craigslist (also expired) reveals his need to “help others”: Avoid scams & fraud by dealing locally! Beware any deal involving Western Union, Moneygram, wire transfer, … tyler hallberg. Location: Puyallup …
Point is, how bad does this kid need money, and how much is Bungie and Microsoft willing to allow this to continue?
