Money, called ETO in Watch Dogs: Legion, isn’t the most important resource — it’s basically just for buying different outfits from the many, many clothing shops around London. Clothing is purely for looking cooler and customizing your squad of randomly-generated DedSec operatives. But still, while I was playing, I desperately wanted more. More so I could just buy whatever I wanted.
Turns out there’s an absurdly powerful trick you can use to make fast cash in Watch Dogs: Legion. This isn’t likely to get patched out or punished by Ubisoft either — in-game money really isn’t used for anything outside of customization. This trick isn’t an exploit, it’s just playing the game and using skills to maximize the amount of money you’ll earn.
This ridiculously useful trick was discovered and shared by u/samplx on Reddit.

Using a specific perk, it’s possible to farm about 6,000~ ETO per minute. All you have to do is find an Operative with the ‘Signing Bonus‘ perk. This perk rewards you with about 300 ETO when you convince the recruit to join DedSec. You’ll instantly get the cash.
300 ETO doesn’t sound like much — but, you can infinitely recruit and retire this operative. After you recruit them, retiring them will leave the recruit with a friendly outlook toward DedSec. That means they’ll instantly re-join.
