Did Raniere/Salinas use fake email with journalist’s name to lure women into Mexican imprisonment?

The shocking allegation that the compassionate Vanguard, Keith Raniere, and his Vice President in charge of ‘Ethics,’ the Gandhi-impersonating, son of a Mexican President, Emiliano Salinas, tried to lure four NXIVM female ‘enemies’ to Mexico to be imprisoned needs a full investigation.

If it was attempted, it is a criminal act.

Four women were invited to come to Mexico. That much we know. And that they got emails purportedly from someone named Yurira Sierra inviting them to an anti cult conference.

All four women were known to have publicly criticized Raniere.

Kristin Keeffe, Raniere’s legal liaison and the mother of his son, and others, alleged that Raniere and Salinas, acting under his master, Raniere’s orders, arranged to bribe a Mexican judge to order indictments of the women. Once they arrived in Mexico they would be arrested and placed in an horrific Mexican jail.

Keeffe has said that Raniere told her that he expected the women would be raped and that one, his ex-girlfriend, Toni Natalie, in particular, would crack under the pressure of incarceration and rape.

(Ironically Natalie has accused Raniere of repeatedly raping her when they were together.)

The entire Mexican plot allegation sounds fantastic, except for the fact that the women actually received emails with the name on the account of a Mexican journalist inviting them to Mexico to an anti-cult conference.

When a reporter at the Albany Times Union was shown a copy of the email, he tried to contact the journalist and did not get a response.

Now the time for investigation is here and is underway.

First and foremost: Did the Mexican journalist named on the email account actually send the invitation to these women (if so was she bribed) or did Raniere/Salinas make a phony email account, as Keeffe alleges.

Here is what one source who asked to remain anonymous but is familiar with the facts told me:

“Anyone can make a Hotmail account with any name.  Yuriria Sierra seems to be a TV reporter (interview with former Mexican president Salinas [father of Emiliano] on YouTube). Also at politico-mexico. See http://politico.mx/team-view/yuriria-sierra.  It would make sense to use the name of a prominent journalist when making a fake email account to lure people to Mexico. So try to contact her, she will probably say the account was fake, and be telling the truth.”

Did Yuriria Sierra actually invite four women to Mexico?

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.
