I'm a member of the members.ggswingtips website and last night I received an email about a new website for 2017. I went to log in but it requires an email address where as the members site I already have access to only uses a user name, not an email address. Does anyone know if it's 2 different websites and 2 different memberships? Also, if anyone else is a member - when I signed up it said there was a members discussion board and access to a members only FB page...I don't see it anywhere in the website. The FB link brings me the public page. How do I access this stuff?

Interesting stuff here after many complaints.
Maybe it will get better now?

I'm a member of the old site. Not sure if I should cancel my membership then join the new one when it's up and running?

Can't say I'm surprised by all this. I get the feeling he rushed into it with good intentions, not realising who he was getting into bed with.

I cancelled my membership end of last year before a renewal would apply. However they charged my credit card anyway and reimbursed me after complaining to them that I have cancelled my membership. Overall it wasn't a bad deal, but I have seen enough in one year.

I actually had a dm conversation about the membership site a little over 2 years ago when he was just announcing it.  It sounded like he was going to be fairly involved in it. Obviously, that didnít turn out to be the case.

Iím just curious if he owns any of the content or if he sold the rights to the content🤔 Anyway, I hope it works out best for him but in hindsight he probably should have ended his relationship with Fish a long time ago. That makes two golf member sites (gg and MtI) that I know of that fleeeced their members.

Have no interest in the issues or the outcome, other than I know some folks on here have had good experiences with Gankas and enjoy the work so hoping they don't suffer, and having met Jake Gilmer a couple of years ago at a clinic of Monte's he seemed a very eager and genuine protege, so to speak, and knew he was doing some teaching in the Las Vegas area before his association with Gankas.  Hope this isn't negatively impacting him but it's a rough and tumble business world!

Same letter on his new URL

https://georgegankas.golf/

I'm guessing he got into a bad deal/agreement with this fellow/website. They probably furnished all the AV equipment, editing, web hosting, etc and gave GG some royalties. If this was the case then yeah he very well could have little to zero control over the content and business practices.

It's probably better for everyone (GG and members) in the long run because that site wasnt put together well at all.

Heís  just a golf coach. Fish probably approached him and told George heíd take care of everything. George was probably just looking for a bit of exposure and a bit of walking around money and didnít think too much of the non golf side until he was contacted directly by unhappy site members.

My sub just auto renewed and I asked for a refund as they didnít send me a reminder, or say when it will renew on the portal.

Basic response was that it was all my fault for not remembering the renewal day from 2 years ago.

They offered me 50% refund and a free lifetime membership. Can see why they were offering that as there likely to be no new content.

I demanded a full refund as he was being dishonest. He then retracted his refund offer, and I told him where to go.

Donít think Iíll bother with GG after this, despite how good the content is.

Good to see him cutting bait.  I was surprised someone would let their name be dragged through the mud as long as he did.  Better late than never I suppose.

You should reply back and tell them you're going to dispute it with your cc company.  It usually costs the merchant more than the original amount if they lose so that might light a fire under their arse.  If it doesn't work then file the dispute with your cc company and tell them it was fraud.  You'll almost definitely win.

If I’m not mistaken several people said he was a crook before the GG site started. Think the word was he had done similar site with other teachers and it went wrong. Glad to see GG get away from the site.

Feel pretty scammed right now. Signed up for a lifetime membership where the instructor will no longer be providing the information. I asked the website for a refund implying that george would no longer be affiliated with the site. Customer service relied saying they would be giving the refund but i could not be farther from the truth, and that the real story will come out. WTF.
