Preliminary Forfeiture Orders Signed – Questions Remain Regarding Other NXIVM Properties

U.S. District Court Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis recently signed three preliminary forfeiture orders concerning NXIVM-related properties – one each for Nancy Salzman, Lauren Salzman, and Allison Mack.

Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis

As a result, all three of the former NXIVM leaders have now forfeited all of their rights regarding, title to, and interest in the following assets:
(a) Fifteen thousand six hundred seventy dollars and zero cents ($15,670.00) in United States currency that was seized on or about March 27, 2018 from 3 Oregon Trail, Waterford, New York 12188;

Some of the cash seized at Nancy Salzman’s former home

(b) Three hundred ninety thousand one hundred eighty dollars and zero cents ($390,180.00) in United States currency that was seized on or about March 27, 2018 from 3 Oregon Trail, Waterford, New York 12188;

(c) One hundred nine thousand seven hundred twenty-seven dollars and zero cents ($109,727.00) in United States currency that was seized on or about March 27, 2018 from 3 Oregon Trail, Waterford, New York 12188;

(d) The real property located at 8 Hale Drive, Halfmoon New York 12065, together with its respective buildings, appurtenances, improvements, fixtures, attachments, easements and furnishings;

8 Hale Drive

(e) The real property located at 7 Generals Way, Clifton Park, New York 12065, together with its respective buildings, appurtenances, improvements, fixtures, attachments, easements and furnishings, and all proceeds traceable thereto;

(f) The real property located at 447 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205, together with its respective buildings, appurtenances, improvements, fixtures, attachments, easements and furnishings, and all proceeds traceable thereto;

(g) The real property located at 455 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205, together with its respective buildings, appurtenances, improvements, fixtures, attachments, easements and furnishings, and all proceeds traceable thereto;

NXIVM headquarters at 455 New Karner Road

(h) The real property located at 457 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205, together with its respective buildings, appurtenances, improvements, fixtures, attachments, easements and furnishings, and all proceeds traceable thereto;

(i) The Steinway grand piano that is located in Nancy Salzman’s former residence at 3 Oregon Trail. As previously reported, the estimated cost of that piano was $40,000 (There is also a $90,000 Steinway piano located at 8 Hale Drive – and the government will get that in conjunction with its seizure of that property); and

Steinway Grand Piano

(j) First Principles, Inc., the Delaware company that owns, among other things, the Rational Inquiry™ technology that includes all 2,000 modules developed by Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman plus various patents for products that were developed by him (e.g., the NXIVM sashes).

In addition to the above, Clare Bronfman has also paid $6 million to the U.S. government in lieu of forfeiting any real property or other assets in which has any ownership interest.

But What About All The Other NXIVM-Related Real Estate?

While it’s great that the government was able to gain control of some of the ill-gotten gains of the NXIVM criminal enterprise, there are still a lot of NXIVM-related properties that have not been seized or otherwise accounted for as of yet.

The properties listed below were known to have been owned by NXIVM-related entities back in mid-2011. The question is who owns these properties now – and why didn’t the government also move to seize some/all of them?

The NXIVM criminal enterprise undoubtedly acquired other properties between 2011 and 2017 – which is when Frank Report broke the story on DOS and its ritualistic branding ceremonies, thus pretty much beginning the destruction of NXIVM.

But since the prosecution team in the Eastern District of New York includes Karin Orsteinan, an asset forfeiture specialist, they should be able to track all of those down as well.

Need To Establish Victims Restitution Fund

All of the assets already seized – plus the $6 million that Clare Bronfman paid in lieu of having any of her assets seized – have become the property of the U.S. government.

Perhaps these other properties can be seized and sold to create a Victims Restitution Fund.

Creating such a fund – and allowing the victims of the NXIVM criminal enterprise to receive some compensation – is the fair and just thing to do.

Judge Garaufis can decide who is – and who is not – a ”victim”. He can do so by allowing anyone who feels they deserve that status to submit a “Victim Impact Statement” and a “Claim For Restitution”.

  • Public records show title to 3 Flintlock Lane is in Cafritz’s AND Keith Raniere’s name. Thought the renunciate didn’t own anything?

    KR & Frank – I emailed you additional info. I found on the properties you list here. Feel free to share it once you’ve confirmed my OSINT research.

  • I think some of those addresses are just where NXIVM and its associates rented space for operations, and so presumably not subject to forfeiture. I doubt the government will be as hard-assed as prosecutors sometimes are in “drug house” cases in particular, when they’ll try to grab properties used for illegal activities even if the landlord was arguably unaware of what was going on.

    I am particularly curious about the fate of 3 Flintlock Lane, which was jointly purchased by Raniere and Unterreiner in the late 1980s. I’d assume the feds would take just Raniere’s share, leaving Unterreiner to either have to sell the property and pay out half the proceeds, or refinance it to pay the government half the value.

  • Been thinking about the Penza diss to Halfmoon and evirons-it really is a beautiful place. Breathtaking–cornfields, semi-rural, and close to Saratoga (and the changing high society), and just a short drive to the Adirondaks.Close to Albany. Upstate NY is a thing–just ask all the Brooklyn people moving to Hudson. The air gets cleaner. The area is expanding in a massive way. And yes, lots of important people travel to Albany.

    Outsiders should realize that Halfmoon was convenient easy pickings for “forward-thinking” manipulators like Nan and Raniere. In the 70s (when Raniere was at RPI) to the late 90s, it was sleepy growing developments.. Raniere is lazy above all; never wanted to put forth much of his energy. All that idiot wanted was a quiet place to walk (skip) around late night where most everyone else is sleeping.

    And Nancy Salzman. Silly social-climbing Nan, sending her daughters to the local school. Interesting that she sent them there. Why not the Waldorf? Didn’t Vanguard want the “best” for you and your children?

    You have to remember that the the best that these people could do to prove their Executive Success was park their BMWs, and assorted “luxury cars” in a row outside in front of Apropos and hang out in the parking lot of a 70s strip mall (former home of Consumers Byline) talking about how they were going to “change the world.” I find it difficult to belive that anyone could fall for it. Ugh. The men were into wearing scarves and riding bikes (bike culture!) Back to Knox.

    I suppose that my point is that there was no real “mission” other than a ridiculous multi-level-marketing scheme in Halfmoon that, like an old neighborhoods in most cities, was taken over by the holier-than-thou/low information searchers/vulnerable/trust fund kids. I have to say that some of them are pretty sly and audacious.

    Sorry Nancy–you lost control.

  • And here goes the BS again…
    “As a result, all three of the former NXIVM leaders have now forfeited all of their rights regarding, title to, and interest in the following assets:”

    Instead of lying, why Don’t you read the case (it should be knowledge to you but you seem to dislike the facts)?

    Allison WAS NOT A LEADER OF NXIVM! This was definitely, undoubtly and clearly showed in court! Stick with the fact.

    “Judge Garaufis can decide who is – and who is not – a ”victim”. He can do so by allowing anyone who feels they deserve that status to submit a “Victim Impact Statement” and a “Claim For Restitution”.”
    Oh that’s cute, you still hope that you could be receiving restitution? Are you really a lawyer?
    This would only work FOR THE VICTIM CITED IN COURT!
    NXIVM was not at the trial (unfortunatly) so NO RESTITUTION will be made to the victims of Nxivm.

    Why am i even trying, you’re probably not understand a word i’m telling you as you keep repeating that stupid “restitution for the victims”…

    • The problem here is not understanding, but agreement. You’re argument is not difficult to understand in all its error. Many people don’t agree with what you’re trying to do, but no ones stopping you from repeating your point, over and over again. If you were sane and in possession of empathy and sympathy, you would stop trying!!

      • Sisyphus :
        “argument is not difficult to understand in all its error”
        would you kindly point were is the error? because that is a vague accusation…Which part is wrong?

        “Many people don’t agree with what you’re trying to do, but no ones stopping you from repeating your point, over and over again. If you were sane and in possession of empathy and sympathy, you would stop trying!!”

        I don’t live for “many people” who are probably the same person spitting his venom over Allison. I care about the Truth…
        BTW,them repeating over and over is Ok but when i defend Allison WITH FACTUAL POINTS instead of lies, i get the “if you were sane”?
        I doubt you are one who should judge me there as you obviously live in a fantasy world where the likes of shadow are making BS into fact.

        Excuse me? “in possession of empathy?” much like Joe joe trying to make a leader someone proved to be Nothing but a pawn?
        Empathy like when others are authorized to spread lies on Allison?

        Empathy to the victim would include Allison! She is a victim too.

        BTW, way to diverge the subject, the point was that once again Joe joe was trying to pretend Allison was Something she is not (proved in court…not in my head)

        And it’s a fact that Allison wasn’t one of the leader (clearly demonstrated in court) and another fact that a restitution to the victims would only include the victim recognized in this trial…
        It wasn’t Nxivm’s trial but Raniere and al trial. just because a couple of people are leader of Nxivm (and it doesn’t include Allison, only Lauren, Nancy, Clare and Raniere had an official position in Nxivm board) , doesn’t mean that the court will give restitution.

      • “One of the properties forfeited was 7 Generals Way which was Allison’s townhome and used for branding the slaves.”
        First, that doesn’t make her a leader at all…especially when compared to the value of the houses of say…Lauren or Nancy or Rosa…
        Second , stick with the facts, this isn’t the house were the branding happened…they said it was grenadier CT which isn’t Allison’s property and which she rented only from JUNE 2017 so after DOS happened…
        It was rented by another Nxivm member before her!
        Third , if you imply that branding occured there because of the ALLEGATION made by 1 neighbor about the yoga or whatever it was…It happened while Allison wasn’t in Knoxwood (but in LA for the play she had in San Diego).
        It’s Nothing more than another Rumor (yeah i know, you like them).

        Also, i doubt the branding occured in Grenadier CT (or else neighboor would have known)

        BTW , i’d like to remember you that branding and Allison don’t have to be in the same sentence as she wasn’t behind it (nor the idea), that is a clear fact now.

        Anyway, what a useless point, like always…

    • If you’re referring to 3 Oregon Trail, that house is owned by Clare Bronfman. And Clare paid $6 million in cash so she wouldn’t have to forfeit any of her properties.

        • From the trial transcript of Nicole’s direct testimony:

          Q So around that time, within those couple days, did you end up having a conversation with Allison where you intended to tell her you were going to leave DOS?

          A Yes.

          Q What happened?

          A She told me that that wasn’t an option, and she told me like did I want to give up my whole career for a boy, and my future and my growth for a boy and — and that — like that’s not the way this worked, and it was a lifetime commitment and it was like an arranged marriage. And I started crying and she — she seemed upset, too, but she said that she couldn’t let me out no matter how hard I cried because it would show me that I — if I cried hard enough — if I cried hard enough I could get out of anything.

          • gettin old? you posted on the wrong message, this was supposed to be directed at me…BTW if you weren’t trying to filter my message so much (especially those where i put you back in you place)…you’d have an easier time to post properly.

            And for what you said :
            “She told me that that wasn’t an option” because Raniere was not allowing it…she did leave, didn’t she?

            “she seemed upset, too, but she said that she couldn’t let me out no matter how hard I cried because it would show me that I — if I cried hard enough — if I cried hard enough I could get out of anything.”
            And what a cruel monster…you also remove the rest of that conversation that end up explaining that Allison can’t release her because Raniere want to release Nicole’s collateral….

            But of course, Raniere is just a victims to you shadow2 .
            Don’t mistake, Allison did exactly what ALL THE DOS MEMBER DID including the low level DOS.

            She was coerced herself and in her case, it’s undisputable as her collateral were partly revealed.
            The whole trial should have exclude her because of that fact but in USA ,victims are prosecuted for the crime of others.

            If she was “upset too”; it would have shown that she had no empathy…her reaction show that she had NOTHING TO SAYS but was FORCED to follow order (in up case “forced” because You and many morons seem to forget that it’s not even a question anymore…Think C O L L A T E R A L.
            If it’s enought to force the other victims to accept to do things, so it is for Allison…Even more so because
            1 . Diet
            2 . Sleep deprivation
            3 . Collateralized with her WHOLE LIFE

            This isn’t a “willingly” decision , obviously or no collateral would have been taken from her

            Also, your love , Lauren, pointed that people shouldn’t think that the collateral was a factor for her and other first line to follow the order…
            They all questionned the decision Raniere made but had no power of decision.

    • I too hope Heather Anne, wherever she may be, knows how this ended. I hope her pain is gone. She seemed to be a woman of great strength who was always polite despite being much maligned by others in this blog. I really miss her story ideas for Shadow. She tried so very hard to redirect him.

  • A NXIVM front company called “Stinka LLC” owned the dungeon house at 9 Milltowne Drive.
    This house was transferred last October for 358,000 dollars.
    Presumably the buyer is ignorant of who owned that property and what it’s intended purpose was.
    How about seizing the proceeds of that sale?

    “And this is the testimony about the dungeon. 9 Milltowne Drive, the sorority house the defendant told his slaves to purchase. And you can see here the warranty deed dated October 25, 2018, with Stinka, LLC signed by Nicole Clyne. She is one of the first line DOS slaves.
    https://frankreport.com/2019/07/17/part-3-moira-penza-paints-not-too-pretty-picture-of-lauren-salzman/

    And who owns Stinka LLC?
    Nicki Clyne did not have the money to buy a 358K home.
    One clue might be where its process address is:

    Home / CLIFTN PARK / STINKA LLC
    STINKA LLC
    557 ENGLEMORE RD, CLIFTN PARK, 12065, NEW YORK
    STINKA LLC is a business entity registered in the state of New York under the legal form of FOREIGN LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY. It can be found in the register by the DOS ID 5410048. The company was established and set into the register at 14th September 2018 and its current status is ACTIVE. Company´s jurisdiction is in the state of DELAWARE in county SARATOGA. Process address of this entity is at 557 ENGLEMORE RD, CLIFTN PARK, 12065, NEW YORK.
    https://www.nyopendata.com/5410048-stinka-llc

    557 Englemore is the official address of Stinka LLC.
    And who owns 557 Englemore?
    Rose Laura Junco.

    Junco is hiding out in’ Mexico.
    She is trying to sell the Englemore house for about 850,000 dollars.
    That is a fire sale price.
    In the past that house has sold for about 1.4 million dollars.

    And 557 Englemore is the house where the Mexican girls brought up to New York to be mentored by the Vanguard lived.
    In other words the Englemore house was being used to groom underage girls for sex.

    Since the Englemore house was used in 2016 and 2017 to groom and house Mexican girls to be used as sex workers, it should be subject to confiscation.

    Here is a website with pictures and information about Rose Laura Junco’s sex grooming mansion.
    It has about twenty pictures of the mansion’s interior.
