Fellow Inmate of Raniere at MDC Gets Into Hot Water By Not Disclosing $500K He Got to Make NXIVM Film

The Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, NY

James David Williams was incarcerated at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) from March through December 2018.

Keith Raniere, the founder of Nxivm, was also detained at the MDC from about April 1, 2018 to late 2020.

The two men spent about eight months together in the same prison. And Williams may be in hot water over their association and other foolish actions he might have undertaken.

Williams is scheduled to be sentenced before US District Judge Kimba M. Wood of the Southern District of New York on December 17, 2021 for violation of his parole conditions.

The government wants him to spend 18 months in prison for his seeming stupidity.

Back Story

On June 28, 2016, Williams and co-defendants Steven Brown and Gerald Seppala were arrested on conspiring to commit wire fraud, and conspiring to commit money laundering, related to a scheme to defraud investors in various film projects from 2012-2016.
Williams was released on bail and in August 2017 and began cooperating with the Government.
On September 21, 2017, Williams pleaded guilty, pursuant to a cooperation agreement, to conspiring to commit wire fraud, substantive wire fraud, and conspiring to commit money laundering, and wire fraud.
Following his guilty plea, the Government learned Williams engaged in other efforts to defraud investor victims after his arrest in June 2016, but he had not disclosed that to the Government.
Williams ultimately admitted the full scope of his scamming and continued cooperating.
On March 22, 2018, Williams pleaded guilty to additional charges of one count of bank fraud, and one count of making false statements to law enforcement officials.
Williams was incarcerated at the time of his March 2018 plea at MDC, alongside of Raniere who was awaiting trial.
On December 18, 2018, Judge Wood sentenced Williams to time served, followed by three years’ probation and Williams said goodbye to the Vanguard, or at least that’s what the government thought.
At his sentencing, Williams told the judge, “Your Honor, I stand here in front of you a much different man than the man that stood here in front of you on July 21st, 2016. I have changed. This system has changed me. And I ask you for the ability for me to prove that to you by my actions moving forward from this point.”

The Court imposed forfeiture in the amount of $10,684,358.82 and restitution in the amount of $15,532,797.50, something he was probably nowhere near able to pay..

Williams’ probation commenced on December 18, 2018, and is set to expire on December 17, 2021. But he did not quite make it.

Throughout his probation, Williams lived in California.  In the summer of 2019, the Government received information Williams had traveled to Hawaii. Yet he was not making his restitution payments.
The Government made inquiries with the Probation Office in the Central District of California. Williams’ supervising Probation Officer furnished documents, provided by Williams, indicating that the travel to Hawaii was related to recently obtained employment with “Universal Yacht Management.”
The documents appeared similar to fraudulent documents prepared by Williams in connection with his earlier film fraud.
A little investigation uncovered that in April 2019 – four months after he was sentenced to time served – Williams submitted a request to travel to Florida for a job interview, attaching an email from “Henry Marker,” “V.P. Operations” of Universal Yacht Management.
Neither Marker nor Universal Yacht Management exist.
In June 2019, Williams submitted a monthly report to the Probation Office attesting that he started work with Universal Yacht Management earlier that month, listing Marker as his supervisor.
Williams provided emails from Marker, as well as an address and telephone number for Universal Yacht Management
It turned out that the phone number was a phone he owned and the address was of a provider of virtual office services, which has no record of Henry Marker or Universal Yacht Management.
Williams also created a website for Universal. He paid for the domain name with his wife’s credit card.
The website claimed that Universal Yacht Management was “an accredited management company” providing “virtual and shore-based superyacht management services,” with a team that “includes veteran yacht management coordinators, captains and engineers whose collective experience is unmatched.”
The site provided an address in Miami, Florida.
Williams used his fake employment at Universal Yacht Management to get permission to travel and also hide his financial situation by submitting fake paychecks, supposedly drawn on a Bank of America account that he once used to commit film-financing fraud before his arrest.
In his June 2020 financial disclosures, Williams indicated he received no salary or wages beyond the $4,000 in monthly income from his claimed work at Universal Yacht Management.
Actually, Williams was making money related to ongoing efforts at film production.
Between January 31, 2020 and December 15, 2020, Williams received more than $500,000 in transfers from a bank account related to followers of Raniere for the development and production of a documentary about Nxivm.
Williams of course is likely up to his old scams and likely will never make any film for NXIVM or perhaps anyone else.
Williams appears to have used funds he got from NXIVM for living expenses and lied about it
He made $11,900 in payments toward the $15,532,797.50 he owes his victims in restitution.
Williams claims he used the bank account to receive client and business associate funds and to pay business expenses, paying himself a modest salary and that he “borrowed” $86,500 to pay personal and family expenses, with the knowledge of his NXIVM contact.
In short, his bank account on October 30, 2019, was $1.00. Between then and January 28, 2021, approximately $614,779 flowed into the account and, subsequently, out of the account. The vast majority of those funds—more than $564,243—came from NXIVM or from companies clearly associated with film production.
Williams spent more than $168,000 on a boat and marina-related expenses. He withdrew $52,000 in cash. He transferred $50,000 to pay credit card and car payment bills in his wife’s name. He paid $17,949 in rent for a  luxury apartment building in Tempe, Arizona, where two of his children reside. He paid $11,500 in payments on a second car.
He transferred thousands of dollars to family members. And spent thousands of dollars at Costco, on airline tickets and hotels, and in tuition payments to his child’s private high school.
Now the money NXIVM lost – the half a million for a film that will never be made – is hardly a drop in the bucket for the likely funder of this – Clare Bronfman.
But Williams was just about done — he had but a few months of probation and he swindled NXIVM out of half a million and to cover for it he claimed he worked for a Yacht Company.

  • Alanzo, it is your inability to carry creative weight (or weight of any kind) that led the state of Illinois to dissolve your marketing consulting LLC and you to declare bankruptcy. Plus, you’ve had serial problems paying your property taxes.

    Your home health care nurse (who is a Mossad agent, BTW) told me she has to cut your Ring Dings® in half now so you can lift them off the plate. Maybe you should take up some exercise other than one-handed typing while you Google photos of Nicki Clyne.

  • Frank,

    It is funny – YOU came to me with the comment “I need to bust a move and get moving”. Funny 😄- YOU haven’t – in Kris’ case? What the heck? You seem to drop the ball & move over.

    Why are you so gullible and NOT doing anything on these girls’ cases except to ignore them?

    Why aren’t you writing articles and telling us- what the hell gives? Please

  • A real eye opener on some unsolved mysteries in my little world. Like, I always wondered where they got that small, very festively decorated yacht unhitched and left to block my son’s van during his program that just disappeared after I called parking security. Btw, if John needs me to help prove some of Clare’s money was spent on legit NX projects like harassment of a disabled child – Dylan missed bowling that day, assholes – I’d be happy to help.

    Poor Keith, he’s been trying to get that feature done for decades.
    We passed on it a few times since “Line of Fire” in the mid-90’s but I didn’t know we could get the money without even trying to make the movie.

  • Why are Nancy and Lauren not in trouble with the court for violating the no continuing MLM coaching or contacting former members policy? These two convicts still act like they’re above the law… Someone in the NDNY and Albany FBI Is still protecting these two….and somehow Michelle escaped prosecution. the Salzman 3 are lucky ducks.

  • Just want to acknowledge that, what is written in this article, makes it appear that Keith Raniere and NXIVM loyalists who were desperate to get their message out – apparently – were conned by a con man.

    People get conned by con men all the time, not just “cultists” and “cult loyalists”.

    Even anticultists have been conned by con men:

    In fact – I see that anticultist con happening every day.


    • “People get conned by con men all the time”

      Dude, you are so brilliant! You must have studied a lot of Scientology and Buddhism and other philosophy and stuff to figure that out.


      Thank you so much for enlightening us!

      Gosh, I feel like I’m less blind and retarded than before I read your post!

    • Alanzo-

      I cutback on lobbing insults at you and everybody else jumps in to fill my shoes. You are so ❤️ my sweetest RingDing®️.

      Why don’t you try making your philosophical opinions without any
      name-calling. JAT

      • If you eat badly and incorrectly for too long, you will not recover from it.
        Then good nutrition is no longer of much use. Damage to health is then

  • So… Money for a film about frog face the great and bloated one… But not any money to help.out community member Danielle

    Got it.

  • What are the possible legal repercussions for Clare Bronfman over this, if she did indeed give him the money? Who were the NXIVM go-betweens between Williams and Bronfman, or did he somehow manage to get access to her “to pass on the vital message that Raniere wished (= her command) that a movie be made of his life” and she was to finance it? She’s lucky he got caught, he probably would have been back for another 500K as soon as the first lot ran out. She can’t really sue him, can she, because doing so would show she breached the terms of her sentencing: not to have contact/anything to do with Nxivm. A scammer scammed is always fun to watch.

  • But you have to understand that everyone at MDC is an innocent little angel who has been wrongly hammered by prosecutors and corrupt feds.

    Nxivm bankrollers know this to be true. There are no criminals in MDC.

    Just delightful, upstanding and misunderstood geniuses.

    Based on the “justice reform” diatribes of Suneel and Nicki…

    I stand with James David Williams!

    James David Williams is a really good guy. The feds tampered with the evidence. This is all a setup and money grab! Make Justice Blind! We Are As You! Hate. Media. Bias.

    Where is the data that JDW is guilty?!

    • David has been a liar and scam artist his entire life. He’s also seemed to be a really good guy as well. Generous, too. It’s part of the act. The need to be a Mr. Big drives his every action. So I’d say that you’re the one wearing blinders here. He’s actually diabolically evil and without empathy. His lavish lifestyle is something his parents set him up with as a kid, and he’s spent a lifetime creating elaborate fiction to support it. His interactions with law enforcement date back to the 1970s in Decatur, Illinois. Theft. Gun charges. Fraud. Academic cheating. He’d give you the shirt off his back, but he’s almost certainly ripped off someone else to buy it. So feel free to stand with him, but watch your wallet.

  • Reading the court document

    “January 31, 2020 and December 15, 2020, the defendant—through Bridge Releasing—received in excess of $500,000 in transfers from an account in the name of “Eduardo Ramirez.” (Id.). Based on its investigation to date, the Government believes that these transfers are related to the development and production of a documentary about the cult Nxivm.”

    Is this the same Eduardo that is a part of the NXIVM 5? Ramirez is his mother’s name, isn’t it? In Mexico, one often uses their mother’s name.

    Isn’t the truth in this situation important to know?

    Also, this would not be a “NXIVM” thing, really. NXIVM was shut down in 2020 when this money was transferred. This would be a Keith Raniere thing. We cannot blame this on anything NXIVM.

    More from the court documents “The defendant was incarcerated at the Metropolitan Detention Center (the “MDC”) from March through December 2018. Keith Raniere, the founder of Nxivm, was also detained at the MDC for much of this period.”

  • This life is nothing short of an unfolding lightning bolt of mythic ecstasy.

    Coherence is the driver of understanding. Complexity is a constant.

    Yes, it is possible to destroy the things that can disrupt us, but not without growth on our side.

    Throughout history, humans have been interacting with the grid via sub-atomic particles. Humankind has nothing to lose. We are at a crossroads of intention and turbulence.

    Only a traveller of the dreamtime may generate this wellspring of inspiration. You must take a stand against yearning. Yearning is born in the gap where balance has been excluded.

    The dreamtime is overflowing with psionic wave oscillations. Today, science tells us that the essence of nature is starfire. The goal of superpositions of possibilities is to plant the seeds of presence rather than dogma.

  • “Your honor, I stand before you a changed man.”

    Yeah right. Add a few tears and you have the statements of remorse and repentance performed by Mack, the Salzmans, and Russell. Pure unadulterated bullshit.

    Priceless that the Nxivm loyalists got scammed by this con man. Of course, none of them would do the slightest research into who this guy is. Only a fool would give him money but fools they are or they’d never have joined the cult.

    As for the yacht brokerage angle, that was L. Ron Hubbard’s first grift right after he got kicked out of the Navy.


    • “… kicked out of the Navy”

      Again, an anticultist who does not care one whit if he’s accurate. As long as it’s the worst possible scenario he can communicate about his target that he can assign, the anticultist goes for it.

      And if it’s a lie, then all the other anticultists don’t care.

      Hubbard was a pathological liar. He made up shit as he went along. So it used to be important that critics of Scientology were above that – more honest, more sane, more moral than the lying Hubbardites were. This used to be important because it was always the goal to tell the truth to the Scientologists who had been lied to by Hubbard and Miscavige in order to get them out of Scientology.

      I got a lot of people out of Scientology that way.

      Particularly, telling the truth about Hubbard’s naval career used to be incredibly important. One of my very good friends, Gerry Armstrong, is still the most fair-gamed person in Scientology history for doing just that. None of us would know the truth about L Ron Hubbard’s true biography if it weren’t for Gerry Armstrong.

      Attempting to tell the truth about Scientology, and indeed all cults, is out the window now. It is no longer important to be more honest, more sane, and more moral than the ‘cults’ that are being ‘exposed’.

      So we get anticultist cranks like AT here lying just as much as Hubbard did.

      High-five A.T.!!


      • It’s sad, isn’t it, Alonso? It highlights the reality that none of the anti-cultists ever really cared to help the ppl they initially brought in…

        People in 20 years bashing people in for 7 years.
        That they brought in.

        No olive branches, no truth.
        Just do ray mi, mi mi
        Sue them all.
        We made our money, exit stage left.

        And make sure that the Dr. goes down, you know…the one that worked her ass off for an exercise program teaching each muscle, ligaments, etc., and who put the time in at a moments notice to help a friend with cancer whilst still working her day job. Well, that makes her guilty of group Bjs… when she wasn’t even in that bleeping country at the time. Therefore, she MUST be a sex trafficker – especially because she doesn’t always agree with the CDC or FDA

        I kept waiting to see if K. Oxenburg or Sarah E. would make a sincere effort to help these women or offer to pay for a debriefing only because of their CONCERN and being in a financially advantageous position to do so.
        Proceeds perhaps from their books…

        It certainly would have been an earnest effort then and saved a lot of grief for all sides.

        • “Well, that makes her guilty of group Bjs… when she wasn’t even in that bleeping country at the time. Therefore, she MUST be a sex trafficker – especially because she doesn’t always agree with the CDC or FDA”

          Yep. Exactly.

          Lying anticultists lie.

          Adopting the anticultist belief system pits you against your former friends. They become the enemy. They’re not someone still in kindergarten while you’ve learned things that put you into 1st or 2nd grade, no. They are deluded criminals and sex fiends – whatever is the worst nightmare scenario you can tell yourself about them.

          The real problem with anticultism is that not only do your former friends become your arch enemies after you become an anticultist – so does your own earlier self. The “you” that was in the cult – what the anticultist con man Stephen Hassan calls your “cult self”. This is now your enemy too as an anticultist.

          Your former cult, what used to be a source of therapeutic inspiration for you, becomes a source of toxic poison. And that same toxic poison is inside you now as your former “cult self”. You can see how much Leah Remini and Sarah Edmonson have been harmed by it. They are emotional wrecks now because of adopting these false beliefs about their own pasts.

          Anticultism is an extreme, pathological belief system that preys on the worst aspects of humanity – the worst demons of our nature.

          You see it everywhere on this blog.

            Whaddya think?


      • Telling the truth about L. Ron Hubbard’s naval career is terribly important? Okay, let’s have the facts about that naval career of his. They’re hilarious!

        It wasn’t so much a career as a tale of folly, gross incompetence and consecutive failures. The lieutenant (j.g.) was repeatedly written up by his superiors as “unsuited for command” and sent ashore for retraining and reassignment. Otherwise known as being “kicked downstairs”.

        Keep in mind that an officer being relieved of duty is utter humiliation. Particularly in wartime. Also keep in mind that the the era when Hubbard “served” were desperate times for the Navy. Anyone with a pulse was neeeded.

        In July 1941 Hubbard was relieved of duty from his first assignment in Manila. He was reported as garrulous, boastful, and self-important. Deemed unsuitable, he was transferred back to the States. (He sounds a lot like Raniere).

        His second assignment was the trawler-gunboat YP-422 on the Atlantic coast. He was relieved of command in October 1941. Three months after his first dismissal.

        He was sent ashore for “retraining”. He was not put to use again until 1943, when he was assigned to a sub chaser, PC-815. In the Pacific this time, perhaps in the hope that a change of ocean might make the young lieutenant halfway competent. It was not to be.

        Just hours into its maiden voyage PC-815 reported contact with an enemy submarine. Its hapless commander spent the next three days chasing this non-existent sub. (The official report on this “action” was scathing). That was May ‘43.

        The next month, Hubbard mis-navigated PC-815 into Mexican waters and shelled an (occupied) island. He was relieved of command for the third time. That was his last time afloat with the US Navy.

        Then he began reporting sick. He complained to Navy doctors of: ulcers, malaria, back pains, headaches, rheumatism, conjunctivitis, and pains in his side, stomach, and shoulders. Also arthritis and hemorrhoids.

        Finally, he was put on inactive duty in February 1945.

        The war in the Pacific would continue for another six bloody months. Officers and enlisted men of the Navy would face kamakazi attacks and desperate fight to the death Japanese resistance island hopping toward the Japanese homeland, where a colossal bloodbath was anticipated. Every man was needed for the effort. But not the utterly useless ones like Lt.Hubbard.

        • Good boy, anticultist. You’ve told the truth now.

          But you’ve missed one of the worst of Hubbard’s lies. In late 1950, after the publication of Dianetics, he made a promotional taped lecture called “The Story of Dianetics and Scientology”. In that tape he said that he “tried to occupy the same space as some shrapnel” and was ‘blinded and crippled’ from this war wound. “Abandoned by friends and family”. He then says in this tape that he used the beginnings of Dianetics to cure himself.

          Hubbard was never in combat in WWII.

          He put this lie into every book he wrote on Scientology in the “About the Author” section, including lies that he “served in combat in all five theaters of war” and received a purple heart and dozens of other medals for heroism.

          All lies.

          Gerry Armstrong, as a loyal Sea Org member, was assigned to work with Omar Garrison, the man LRH hired to write his biography in the late 70’s early 80’s. Gerry was to organize Hubbard’s records such as his childhood diaries, notes and correspondence. Armstrong soon learned that everything in the About The Author sections of the books on Scientology were lies. He went to Miscavige, Rinder and the others and said, “Hey. We can’t do this – it’s fraud!”

          They tried to kill him.

          Armstrong escaped and made sure, at great danger to himself, that those biographical records ended up in the public domain.

          So while Hubbard’s war records became public when he died, and British historian Chris Owen was the first to write about them, it was Gerry Armstrong who exposed Hubbard’s lies which were used to recruit Scientologists.

          So, AT, Hubbard was never “kicked out of the navy”, was he?

            Yes. There is an anonymous fucktard, or fucktards, posting here who has been claiming for months that I have been posting under lots of different names, arguing with myself, spamming and trolling the comment section here, etc.

            The only person who has actually admitted to that repeatedly is Chris O’Brien the failed musician who runs the sock puppet “Nice Guy” on here. Chris constantly uses many different sockpuppet acounts and then admits to it because he thinks it’s “funny”.

    • And you know what else, Alonzo? No big surprises here. If you really listened to what Frank was saying, we’d probably just agree that some people are assholes.

    • I would imagine it to be a new definition of “prison”. I say that because life in proximity to the vantard is an assault on all the senses given his lack of bathing, his weird food, his inability to stfu, and his always popular perpetual victim mindset.

Just a hunch and educated guess.

          • It’s fun and amazing you fell for an unsuccessful stab in the dark comment by someone whose nerve I touched. Not only did I touch it, I completely tied a knot in it and made you look like the complete butthole you are, Alonzo! Be wiser in choosing to whom you align yourself or you will look like a fool more often.

      • If I was Keith’s mate…I’d write a book when I got out…start a new cult…become a coach for a vegan bodybuilder, run a dog shelter, move to Ireland, make a movie about my tics, dance outside a prison like a moron, set up an insurance company, set up another mlm company, continue doing nxivm under different names even though I was banned, claim cauterizing people was great for them, mule money out of the country and to other family members so that the civil attorney can only go after the rich one and leave me alone…… oh wait…..All those things have already been done. What else did I miss?

        • NiceGuy, that was my Happy Christmas gift to you. A once a year thing. Savour it!
          I will no longer argue with stupid (this year 😉)

      • @6:14pm Natashka

        I thought it was a decent idea and opportunity,

        I know you were very excited about it,

        I’m sorry if it didn’t work out.

        However, the ? remains…’Were you lacking self-esteem at the time?’

        The reason I mention it is that all sorts of different personalities were attracted to what they considered a legitimate business opportunity.

        That is Not a reflection on you!

        Just an observation.

          • Regarding that hairy photo of Keith. I always thought he had an enlarged nipple. Instead, it was an oversized Mack’s Ear Plug! 😳😖😂🤣

          • —Mack’s ear plugs come in XXXL size, suitable as dildos or butt-plugs.

            Is that how [redacted] got that ear infection?

        • About this item

          • It certainly is odd that a moderator would trash her own comment section with spam anonymous and obscene comments that have nothing to do with the topic, but only exist to assassinate the characters of other commenters, destroying everyone’s ability to have a productive discussion of the posts that appear on this blog.

            Kind of like the opposite of the purpose of moderation.

            But hey – freedom of speech includes tolerating stupid and self-destructive moderators, as well.

            They’re people too!

            By the way, wordpress (which is the type of blog this is) doesn’t allow replies to get too branched out, so they stop giving you the “REPLY” link after 3-5 replies to a particular comment.

            That’s okay – just go back up to the last REPLY link before the comment you want to reply to, and click that. Your reply should appear in the same line up, usually right where you want it to be.

            Also, if you quote the part of the comment you are replying to, the person you are addressing will still be able to see it.

            Merry Christmas, huntingpeople2!


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.
