The unbalanced scales of our criminal justice ssytem

Open letter to various law enforcement officials including Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of New York, Grant Jaquith, Esq.,  FBI Special Agent Vadim Thomas, IRS Special Agent Shantelle P. Kitchen, Eric T. Schneiderman, New York State Attorney General, Karen A Heggen, Saratoga County District Attorney, Michael H. Zurlo, Saratoga County Sheriff, New York State Bureau of Criminal Investigations Sr. Investigator Rodger Kirsopp:


As most of you are aware, or soon will become aware, a peculiar cult-like group has been operating in your community – and engaging in what is clearly suspicious and quite possibly criminal activities.

Over the next few days, Frank Report will be presenting a carefully prepared blueprint of what these alleged criminal activities are.

The group operates under various names, including Executive Success Programs, NXIVM Inc, Jness, DOS, The Knife, Society of Protectors, Ethical Humanitarian Foundation and other names.

It is lead by Keith Raniere. His top aides are Clare Bronfman, Nancy Salzman, Karen Unterreiner, Allison Mack and Dr. Danielle Roberts D.O., all of whom reside principally in Saratoga County, New York.

The alleged illegal activities can be summarized into four categories.

Those four categories – and examples of the illegal activities – are as follows:

Financial Issues

  • Unpaid taxes
  • Unreported income
  • Unreported payments to staff
  • Use of “shell companies” and bank accounts in names of shills to hide income and payments
  • Failure to issue W-2 statements to employees
  • Failure to issue 1099 statements to independent contractors
  • Mischaracterization of income as loans
  • Reimbursing staff for directed “political donations”
  • Bringing undeclared cash into and out of the country

 Foreign Activities

  • Smuggling of unregistered foreigners into the country
  • Hiding foreigners whose visas have expired
  • Providing false documentation to assist foreigners in obtaining visas
  • Hiring foreign company to undertake data gathering on individuals that is illegal in the U.S.: i.e., Canaprobe
  • Coercing foreign nationals to do unpaid work.
  • Imprisoning foreign nationals

Blackmail & Undue Influence

  • Utilizing various torture-like techniques to break-down individuals
  • Pubic branding under duress
  • sex  crimes of various types

Perjury & Falsification of Evidence

  • Filing of false affidavits
  • Creation of false “evidence”

Let’s keep adding to this list of potential crimes that should be investigated. How about Nancy Salzman’s “Annual Clothing Allowance” – which used to be $30,000-$40,000 of unreported income per year? Of course, that may have been downgraded now that she’s become Post-fect.

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.
