What you say is true,

But, being a GM or IM does not guarantee anything...

I have tons of videos, courses, and books written by GM and IM cheaters who intentionally skip critical lines to sell their products. Now, I know them!!

On the other hand, some GMs really LOVE what they are doing: Dvoretsky, Mikhalchishin, Sokolov, Shereshevsky ... never sacrifice the quality. And... I know them as well!

The cheaters will cheat... and they will disappear

Just Keep Moving Forward... People will see and judge.

Keep Moving Forward :)

I didn't know that such people were fishing on google. I learn only from Trustworthy sources, Chessmood, chess with Suren, watch fide games, and streams of the GMs playing on lichess and chess.com . I mean, known GMs, such as Grishuk, Nakamura, or even Zhigalko and Zubov, Firouzha and others as well.

I love ChessMood article and courses but, my DAD thinks that pre recorded material does not do any benefit. you just get the explanation of each move and that does not improve your thinking skills.He says you should see games and learn openings on your own. That's the reason my dad never buys me chessmood PRO. Now I am working HARD to win that money by winning online tournaments and then I will buy my membership!!!

With all the respect to your father, I am 100% sure it's a wrong approach. 
For learning all these courses, I have students who spend more than 10.000$. 
Now all of them are recorded and are available for 29$/Mo... 

Of course, if you can afford 100$/h with a coach, you'll learn faster. 
But with limited budget, learning from trustworthy courses- is the fastest way.

100$/hr is like 7000 rupees here in India! So instead of Taking 6-7 hrs of classes I could literally buy a DGT Board! Totally not worth 100$/hr! That's the reason I love Chessmood! Low on Budget High on Quality!

I can tell you one good Youtube chess channel called 'GJ_chess' It is very good he shows high profile tricks and traps and has almost created a video of every chess opening!

True I faced this issue too. I met an IM online on chesss.com and he gave me account of his gf then i sent him 100 usd and he never showed up and blocked me. I texted all chess webs and they said show us legal court proof and they will ban him. Issue for me was I had no idea about how to file a case because he was from abroad but not India.  I was also misguided a lot by many YouTube channels. I don't wanna mention their names but still sad for money they made a huge channel for tricks and traps and a lot people who are new in chess are falling into their trap. Even when I talk to beginners it take a lot time for to convince them that chess is a game of strategy not tricks and  in real world tricks wont work and after i show them basic books name they feel not attracted to study chess because those channel ruined their mindset.  

Yeah not only online but also offline world is super dangerous. I heard from my friend that people in New Delhi are taking more than 3000 usd to train a beginner and they promise their parents that they can make their kid's level to 1600 from beginner. But see money. 3000 usd and getting only 1600 level. This is rubbish. And worse thing is they are reputed coaches in New Delhi. Even in past when I started making small contents from kids then the Secretary of my state called me and asked me to promote chess in my town. I said I tried a lot but people are not into chess in my city and then he said it's useless to make blogs for kids or anyone. Focus on earning and I said ok. I was so irritated by his words and I felt like what the hell.  He said he is 1600 and takes 10 usd per hr and seriously by hearing his words I knew he only sucks time of student and get money but he never helped anyone to improve because all he talked about promotion and money.  I know promotion matters in chess but it's the task of state secretory to promote chess in my town and then we can do more help because he is known to all not me. Anyways in the end I left the call and I  felt irritated. 

I am glad finally I found chessmood where mentors are not marketers and they care for their student's game level instead of filling their pockets.  This is best mindset of a true mentor or in India we call them guru. Even ancient gurus in india were same. They cared for student but not money but modern world people are selling their useless products and mis guiding a lot people.
