Law Enforcement alert: What are the alleged crimes Raniere/NXIVM did?

The Bronfman sisters (Clare and Sara) have contributed more than $150,000,000 of their personal funds in order to support Keith Raniere and other NXIVM/ESP-related individuals, and NXIVM/ESP-Related Business Entities over the last 12 years.

Although much of this funding has been labeled as “loans” for accounting and tax purposes, there is, in fact, no reasonable expectation that these funds will ever be repaid – and, as a result, should have been treated as taxable income with respect to the entities that received them or as gifts to be taxed to the Bronfmans at gift tax rates.

This may constitute tax evasion on a grand scale.

Some of the other crimes that others have alleged Raniere and Bronfman and co. have committed are: Bank fraud; bribery; business fraud and theft; charities fraud; conspiracy; corruption and/or attempted corruption of public officials; endangering the welfare of a child; filing false instruments; insurance fraud; violations of Federal and State campaign finance statutes and regulations; immigration fraud; labor fraud; mail fraud; money laundering; obstruction of justice; perjury; structuring; tax evasion; tax fraud; theft of services; and wire fraud.

NXIVM/ESP-Related Business Entities do not issue W-2 Forms and/or 1099 Forms with respect to the various commissions and salaries that they pay to their respective staff – and/or with respect to the various non-business related expenditures that they make on behalf of Raniere, Nancy Salzman and other members of NXIVM/ESP.

NXIVM/ESP is structured as a Multi-Level Marketing company and operated as a Ponzi scheme.  Raniere is barred from being involved in this type of business structure in New York State – which may be why his name appears on few, if any, documents concerning NXIVM or any of the other related business entities.

There is a fertile field to investigate and the good news is there are plenty of witnesses who undoubtedly will seek to save themselves by testifying to what they have seen.

Keep it in mind.

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.
