“THE GREATEST TRICK THE DEVIL PULLED WAS THAT HE DIDN’T EXIST”.
By the Tipster
I’m dedicating that quote to myself and some of my friends today.
More accurate for us might be “The Devil Lives Amongst Us and Is Hiding as an Angel”.
Everybody who is like me who has taken the courses and made their way up the organization is probably questioning everything that they believe in life.
We were all duped. Completely duped by a sociopath.
Here’s the thing: Everything was a lie and we all bought into it. Now it’s time to question how he was able to do it and why we all bought it.
More important. Now is the time to act.
Everyone who took the courses was defrauded.
Prior to taking the courses, I was told Keith had a photographic memory (and could remember everyone’s name in the course just by seeing their face), that he was the smartest man in the world (read about the test he took on this website) and that he was enlightened (I guess enlightenment means sleeping with a lot of women and branding them). All of which were lies told by his co-conspirators.
I’ve had many interactions with Keith (as well as coaching) and he couldn’t remember my name or anyone else’s. I’ve been to V-week almost every year for the last five years and judging how he is around women he is attracted to… this is not an enlightened man. This is a horn dog sociopath. I feel stupid and ashamed.
I drank the Kool-aid.
And if you want proof you aren’t dealing with a highly intellectual man, watch any of the videos labelled Keith Raniere on Youtube but especially this one:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQE4OskakZU (start at 18:45, but if you want to hear more drivel start earlier. Look at Grace Park’s face. She thinks he is crazy too.)
Any of the videos will show any rational person that this isn’t a genius. It’s a man who talks in circles in a pseudo-intellectual way.
None of this matters. The reality is we’ve all been defrauded. In a heinous way. There are things we can do about it.
Contact the authorities:
1) FBI Albany – 200 McCarty Avenue, Albany, NY 12209, (518) 465-7551
2) Albany County Sheriff’s Department: ContactSheriff@AlbanyCounty.com, 518-487-5400
3) Attorney General Albany – 518-776-2000
4) Contact the FTC: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/#crnt&panel1-1
5) NY state Consumer Protection board – 800-697-1220
6) NY Better business bureau – Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: 212-533-6200
If you feel you’ve been defrauded, I suggest you contact all of these agencies, since you never know which one will act. The women who have been branded, I implore you to contact each of those places (especially the top four) but everyone else who feels they were duped should also contact the authorities.
Consider suing the organization to get your money back. As we were all defrauded, these lawsuits could happen in small claims court and cost everyone as little as $15 in Albany Small Claims court. Massive lawsuits will cause issues for the organization and bring it down.
Let me make this clear…
Right and wrong in this scenario is abundantly clear. And you can act. Do what’s right. And right now you have to make a decision whether to take a stand or to pretend nothing happened.
Sometimes you can only take bad people down through numbers. This may be one of those instances.
If you did learn anything of value in the courses, it is that looking away and pretending nothing has happened is ethically wrong.
The time to act is now. I’ve heard rumors that Keith may be thinking about fleeing (not sure his hubris would allow that). And rumors of much worse. This means ‘time is of the essence.’
I’ve done this already myself.
Send all of the authorities to this frankreport.com site.
Make the world a better place and do the right thing. Do the ETHICAL thing and report fraud if you feel you’ve been defrauded by ESP lies.
The people below may have committed fraud:
FYI: After reading your letter on June 16th, 2017 i sent it and links to the Frank Report to the New York Times and requested them to independently investigate your claims.
Thank you for your courage to speak out and I hope you are recovering from the trauma.
Small claims court? They milked way more than small claims court allows? I do agree however ALL the courses money should be restitution to all defrauded as mandatory.
It looks like Grace is more incredulous at 14:41. Look at her face for some seconds. This is after the ridiculous point where Raniere says lying to a neighbor about being their long lost relative and is analogous to acting. The guy is a tool. The former is real life scenario, where the latter is a contrived one. It is not the actor’s fault that a person or fan who watches their show conflates fantasy with reality and thinks the actor is the real person. They only know the character being played. Acting is not real. It is only made to seem real. Therefore, it puts the actor under no obligation to deal with them as he suggests because they didn’t cause the misunderstanding. It is the fan’s who conflates two different contexts.
