Since breaking the Nxivm branding story in June 2017, I have been getting a steady stream of emails. Some want help. Some offer tips and info. Some are suspicious. Some threaten. Some seem a little confused.
Some write that they are true victims undergoing real threats. It is hard to tell how real the threats actually are.
Note: For those who are being threatened and face immediate and grave danger, feel free to contact me by phone [716-990-5740], or, of course, contact law enforcement [but NOT law enforcement in the Albany area].
Here are a few emails which I received in the last few days. I am posting them for two purposes – to reveal a little of what people write me that often does not make the Frank Report and to remind people in trouble that they can reach out to me, if they think I might be able to assist them.
At all times, I keep the identity of my sources and correspondents confidential unless they agree otherwise.
Nancy did not attend nursing school in Pennsylvania. She got her RN training at the now defunct Muhlenberg Hospital in Plainfield New Jersey.
Again you have to keep me secret as your source. Thank you,
I will of course keep your identity confidential. I appreciate the info. Maybe Nancy will cooperate with the feds and help them put away the true criminal, Keith Raniere.
Hi, I am a high school student researching the economics of sex trafficking. Through my research, I found out about NXIVM and I am attempting to use NXIVM as a case study in my research report. Through some deep digging, an unnamed source gave me information on Ben Szemkus as well as information about Keith and the Bronfmans. I was then directed to contact you. I believe you have information that is imperative to establishing credible evidence in my research, which makes you an extremely valuable asset to me. Please write back with any information you can give me regarding your time spent at NXIVM. I know there are NXIVM connects who are still roaming around unpunished and only you can bring them justice. Please write me back with any help you can give me I would greatly appreciate it.
I have been closely following the Nxivm case in the Albany Times Union, but more recently have searched online reading the FrankReport, with all its excellent links. It has taken me way down a very disturbing rabbit hole and my mind keeps coming up with more questions. I live in […redacted] now, but previously lived in […redacted]. My [… redacted] knew who Kristanna Loken was in school …. and now her name is associated with Keith, as possibly having his child????? WTF??
Those silly girls that got involved with that LOSER, are most likely the very gullible type needing affirmation through their looks and being “loved” by some man.
And they thought he was their Vanguard … a frigging ORACLE that will make them successful and a wonderful human being!! It was good that their ESP attracted those who could spend/waste that amount of money for some sketchy classes. The classes were the way to begin the brainwashing/collateral collecting that was so necessary to compromise wealthier women that they could financially drain/use. I cannot relate as I am not wealthy and not gullible!
[…. Important info redacted because it offered possible leads on Nxivm -Raniere connections with public figures in the USA and Mexico which I wish to further investigate.]
Please, if you do read this, let me know. I will have some more thoughts on this… it has been giving me nightmares and I wanted to share my feelings with you. If I can be of further help, please let me know.
Thanks for realizing that what you were seeing was something that “had to be stopped” and you persevered. You and Catherine Oxenberg (excellent book she wrote) are my HEROES. For me, and all my friends who have been raped and assaulted, thanks from the bottom of my heart!
Dear J —
I read your email and I thank you for your thoughts. I don’t know if there is a connection to NXIVM and [Redacted]….
Can I get your advice about something?
I’ve been reading your column for much of the past year. I’m very impressed with the job you did at breaking down NXIVM. Very impressed indeed. I also like the caustic edge in the writing in your articles. I regularly contribute to your comments section also.
So, would you be so kind as to give me your feedback about […redacted] … I’d like to know if you smell anything fishy with […redacted]…..
If you wish, you can call me at (716) 990-5740 and we can discuss this matter ….
Help Us Frank … victims – need advice
Your websites have helped me tremendously. I cannot thank you enough. I’m sure that you know how helpful you have been to so many victims. I came across your sites after months of trying to figure out what was happening to my wife.
I believe my wife is an unwilling DOS slave. If not, it’s something worse. She has dissociated from a lot of it, and it has ruined our lives.
She has been sexually abused, traumatized, and forced to have sex seemingly as an unpaid prostitute. When I realized what was going on, I first thought she was having an affair. [Goes into a lengthy explanation of what happened to his wife – which I redact for their protection]…
I’m therefore nervous that they will retaliate by planting files on our PC as I have read they have done in the past. Unlike you, I’m no hero. I just want the nightmare to end, and as I read at the bottom of your DoS Women article, you may be able to offer “tools” and other advice.
[More details… redacted] …
We want to protect ourselves from any more abuse, not to draw attention to ourselves. We don’t know what to do. Do you have any advice?….
I know you are probably incredibly busy with everything you do, but any advice you can give would be helpful. Does NXIVM employ ritual abuse-torture techniques? Is there a list of local […redacted] members or maybe a history of Jness meetings or other NXIVM meetings around here over the last 5 or so years? … Thanks again. I appreciate your time and help.
I have had others tell me the same things you described as happening to your wife. If you want to call me to discuss, my phone number is (716) 990-5740
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.” In addition, he was 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. 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 premieres on May 22, 2022.

The last email from the man concerned about his wife gives evidence this is not just some kinky sex club where everyone is a willing participant. I hope everyone gets the help they need.
Frank – How many of the people who you recommend to call you actually do that?
I’d say at least half
That’s good to know. Often, I’ve found people don’t follow up on their communications, especially when it involves the telephone. This is too bad, because the written word often is far inferior to the phone, where emphasis, checking for understanding, etc., come in very handy.
That last email makes me think that what we currently know about NXIVM is just the tip of the iceberg.
