What Happens to Prefect Salzman if the Vanguard, Raniere, Flees to Fiji?

Several former and/or present NXIVM members have written to me about my recent, speculative posts about the Vanguard, Keith Raniere, funded by Clare Bronfman, possibly fleeing to Fiji to avoid prosecution.

Uppermost in several Nxian’s minds is: what happens to Prefect, Nancy Salzman, whose name is on everything from NXIVM, the company, to real estate to bank accounts to so-called “shell corporations”?

“The (flight to Fiji) story …. isn’t hard to believe”, one Nxian writes, “Raniere has talked … for years (about) having his own island i.e. country,.” adding that, if he were to flee to Fiji, “he has his out of all the illegal behaviors.”

A Nxian writes, “Question is, is the island big enough for all those who he has involved in his schemes or are they going to be left behind for the Feds to sweep up for prosecution?

“The question is where does this leave Nancy Salzman? Is she going to the islands also? If not, as predicted for years, it leaves her holding the bag.”

Another Nxian writes, “NXIVM is in deep ‘poop’ with unpaid state and federal taxes. I’ve been at a training where Raniere preached that paying taxes was unethical and supported an unethical government. Both Nancy Salzman and Barbara Jeske worked people over several times attempting to get people to not pay their taxes.”

Keith Raniere is the world’s smartest man, his adoring followers say.
Does Nancy Salzman love her master enough to take the fall for him? Does the Vanguard love his Prefect enough to protect her?

Fiji might make a nice locale for a fugitive named Raniere

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.
