Does she obey her master’s commands? Raniere’s real estate scam in Los Angeles

Lou Avino was an employee of Clare and Sara Bronfman under my direction in Los Angeles CA. He came there at my request to help get control of a real estate project that Keith Raniere had recommended to the Bronfmans.

They had invested  $26 million into the project but did not have title to the real estate.

I soon discovered that the man Raniere had referred to the Bronfmans as a trusted partner was absconding with their money. I stepped in and recovered the assets giving control to the Bronfmans.

After I exposed the fraud, Raniere turned on me and instead of feeling gratitude, the Bronfman sisters followed the commands of their master, Raniere.

While Clare Bronfman praised me for uncovering the fraud and saving her millions, it did not matter. The master’s schemes prevailed and after winning the lawsuit against the absconding partner, Raniere and her turned on me.

It was a rather shocking thing to have recovered $26 million for someone and instead of getting gratitude to get her master’s enmity, and her money used to attack me.

This does not happen among ethical people.

In my next post I will publish Lou Avino’s eye witness account of what happened.

Does she obey her master’s commands even if they are unethical?

  • You made Raniere look bad. That’s the last thing you can do to a narcissist. Not only that, you did front of his two major minions. Ironically, the ones who have all the power in the relationships because they have all the money – and what he really wants along with the ego masturbation and the sex – but cede it to the gargantuan charlatan because they’re ridiculously naive. Maybe Raniere was also mad because you ruined his plan to have his hand chosen partner steal money under the table for him too.

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.

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.
