Is Raniere’s treatment of Natalie that of a Vanguard?

Nancy Salzman

He is a Vanguard?

Who, among the lowest of you, would treat en ex girlfriend/boyfriend this way?

With millions at your disposal and with an array of lovers at your disposal – who among you would do what Keith Raniere has done to Toni Natalie?

After she broke up with him 16 years ago, Raniere did the following to Toni Natalie:

  1. He sued her repeatedly
  2. Arranged for followers to sue her
  3. When her legal bills exceeded her assets, had his lawyers block her bankruptcy, for 8 years.
  4. Sent her threatening letters
  5. Encouraged his female followers to harass her
  6. Allegedly had followers break into her house
  7. Sent law enforcement to her door
  8. Contacted the US Attorney and the FBI to encourage an investigation
  9. Had his followers compile a financial report on her
  10. He released it to the media and law enforcement
  11. Hired a private investigator to monitor her
  12. Tried to lure her to Mexico to allegedly have her arrested
  13. Contacted her family and threatened them
  14. Called her and threatened her
  15. Pressed criminal charges (even hiring a former Albany County Chief Assistant DA to use his influence to get an indictment)
  16. Got her indicted.


For 16 years Keith Raniere has used the wealth at his disposal to haunt this woman. He has impoverished her, and tried to imprison her. (And is still trying).

Even if she has done something not very nice to Raniere, (she spoke badly about him) it does not justify what he has done to her.

He has wealth at his disposal; she is bankrupt; he has followers and a harem of love slaves; she is just trying to live her life without Raniere; along the way he has made that life miserable for her.

Who calls him Vanguard? His actions are that of a devil.

Who calls him compassionate or merciful?

Who has mercy for this woman?

Among his followers there are none.

“We are followers of the Vanguard.”

Who has compassion for this woman?

Followers of the Vanguard, ask yourself this question: What kind of sickness makes a man hunt a woman for 16 years?

What could she possibly do (or did) to him that justifies this?

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
