NXIVM still recruiting

By Frank Parlato

Last week, sources told me that NXIVM recruited two more slaves within the last few weeks.

Following the arrests of actress Allison Mack and sex-slave guru Keith Raniere, one would think that the recruitment of slaves would be over.

But Clare Bronfman, the Seagram’s heiress, is still funding the sex-cult and, hence, the cult still lives – even without its fearless leader, Raniere who is in jail.

Last month, YouTube poster “FkeBld” called NXIVM/Executive Success Programs, after scheduling an interview to “discover more about their coursework.”

FkeBld spoke with Marc Elliot, a longtime cult member and recruiter. FkeBld recorded the conversation.

Elliot starts off telling FkeBld about a “negative media campaign against us,” and asking how much FkeBld had seen of it.

Elliot informs FkeBld [at around 2:30 minutes] that the “course” is “referral-based” and not usually open to people that “we don’t know at all,” because, “the people that go through the course, the way that, like they’re the best people to know when they share it with somebody on whether or not they think the person would be well-suited for it.”

Members of the cult are being investigated for coercing members into forced labor and sex trafficking. [Raniere and Mack have already been charged.]

A key component in the coercion and slavery theory is the cult’s holding damaging “collateral” on members: e.g., nude pictures, confessions real and false, and other compromising information used to ensure compliance with Raniere’s demands. Members were required to provide blackmail-worthy collateral monthly.

“This is a very different type of course. It’s not like it’s a cheerleading-type course,” ” Elliot says in the interview.

Elliot suggests a video-call is indicated to further evaluate FkeBld.

Elliot advised FkeBld to “look online,” “because right now we’re under such a severe smear campaign, I think we’re more apprehensive… to really make sure that people who are coming want to be here, because it’s been a very difficult time with the media.”

Added Elliot “We want people to be aware of [the media coverage]” and “We want people that have the ability to recognize and sort of see through the weeds, if that makes sense.”

Well, it sounds like their are still recruiting students. Not all students become a part of DOS, hence it’s disingenuous to say they are still recruiting slaves, when it’s clear this call was regarding recruiting students for ESP. It’s another discussion whether all students of ESP should be considered as slaves. I would say not, as then the lines between those who were abused as slaves and left, and those who were never part of DOS or felt abused, and still left, would become blurry, and resulting in really sheltering ESP / NXIVM.
For anyone else who talks with someone from NXIVM again, and they give them the smear Champaign story, just ask the person, how they caused it and do not take any excuses. They will try to wriggle out using word salad, but don’t fall for it and just keep pushing, until either you get tired and or they give up …

It is not another discussion. It is true.
People who join any branch of NXIVM and stay involved ultimately become a slave.
People are cut off from their friends and family who are outside of NXIVM.
They are supposed to spend all of their time and all of their money only on NXIVM.
It is a form of slavery, and it is wise to recognise it for what it is.

“Referral”-based, eh? I wonder who else used that term?

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.
