Bangkok: Keith is not legal owner of 1/3 Wakaya Island; Frank, Toni and Barb won’t collect as Nxivm victims

Clare may be leaving on a jet plane to Fiji.

Editor’s Note: Bangkok is responding to an earlier post, Email reveals Raniere Owns One-Third of Wakaya Island in Fiji. The email referenced is one from Clare to Keith indicating she understood that he owned 1/3 interest in ACK the corporation that owns Wakaya Island in Fiji.

By Bangkok

Those Wakaya Island assets are NOT in Keith’s ‘name’ — you dummies. 🙂

A private email does not constitute official legal ownership of an island, meaning that Keith does not legally have the right to sell his 1/3 interest in that asset to other parties or have it confiscated in his name to settle any debts that he might owe.

Get a clue.

If it were that simple then title documents wouldn’t be necessary. Just send an email to buy an island, LOL.

No matter what Clare’s email might say about Keith being a partial owner of Wakaya, only Clare Bear can sell those assets and/or borrow against them to generate cash. I doubt the US government can seize the ownership of a foreign island anyway, even in Clare’s name.

Also… Frank Parlato, Barb Bouchey and Toni Natalie would NEVER receive funds intended for NXIVM victims because they are not officially NXIVM victims under the law. They did not get raped or branded like Jane Doe witnesses did.

Any money recovered from NXIVM assets (not used to satisfy government tax debts) will likely go to the OFFICIAL victims of NXIVM such as Jane Doe witnesses and rape victims, not to guys like Frank or longtime NXIVM girlfriends like Toni or Barb.

Frank has suffered from NXIVM greatly but under the law he’ll never be a ‘victim’ — since an indictment (even if its unwarranted) does not make him a victim in the eyes of the law.

Toni and Barb are also not victims and won’t recover one dollar from NXIVM unless they first sue NXIVM and get a judgment against them, which would take years and due to their own complicity (when they were part of NXIVM and following Keith’s orders) no jury would likely award them any money IMO.

Get a clue.


Editor’s clarifications.

  1. The charges against Frank Parlato concerning the Bronfmans was dropped by the Feds which could conceivably open the door to malicious prosecution claims against the Bronfmans.
  2. Toni Natalie could barely be said to be a member of Nxivm. Although she was briefly in the organization, when it was called Executive Success Programs – in 1998 – she got out – and away from Keith – within months of the starting of the so-called ‘self help” organization. 
  3. Barbara Bouchey is posting her views on how she participated in the cult and what she did to take it down after she realized the harm Keith was doing to others. She would likely not agree that she obeyed Keith’s orders once she fully realized what a louse, fink and ultimately monster he was.

Parlato has been featured prominently on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and acted as lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” 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 has 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, which was ironic since many credit Parlato as being one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
