Irish Couple: Frank Parlato Saved Our Daughter From NXIVM

On July 31, 2023, Senior US District Judge Hon. Richard J. Arcara sentenced me to 12 months probation, with five of those 12 months on home detention. My crime was failing to file IRS Form 8300 in 2010 when I collected $19,970 in rent from a food stand vendor in cash.

The Government conceded in the Plea Agreement [Paragraph 21] that I reported the $19,970 cash as income on my 2010 tax returns.

But I failed to inform the IRS that the $19,970 came in cash. The US requires that if a person collects more than $10,000 in cash from a single source in one year, they must file IRS Form 8300.

Before sentencing, my attorneys, Herbert Greenman and Paul Cambria, submitted 78 letters of support from various individuals. I had originally planned to collect and submit many more letters. However, I felt that 78 was a fair sampling, and submitting more – touching largely on similar themes would be disrespectful to the judge, whose conscientious approach to sentencing, I learned, was such that he read every letter.

I also chose to withhold several letters of support from famous individuals, because I did not want their names to be a distraction to my sentencing.

I declined to publish my letters of support before sentencing because I felt it would be disrespectful to publish them before the judge made his determination about my future.

Now that I have been sentenced, I believe some letters should be published not just for my self-aggrandizement, though they are supportive of me but because they have importance as commentary on events or the relating of facts that some readers might care about.

Among the letter writers is Ruth McMurray of Ireland.

Here is what she wrote:

Dear Judge Arcara,

I write on behalf of my husband, Richard, and myself. We have lived in Ireland all our lives and have been married for 46 years. Much of my family resides in Toronto and I’ve often been to stay with them, so my knowledge of Canada is long standing and up to date, as it is with America. We have four children ranging from 24 to 40 years of age. The eldest three graduated university with various degrees; PhDs and Masters, and all have successful careers in line with their chosen subjects. Both my husband and I have had enduring careers mostly within the periphery of our legal system. We still work part time.

We have a passion for the care of the elderly and dogs. We have respect for the judicial system because of our understanding of due processes which must be followed.

I will outline how we came to know Frank Parlato, so far away in New York.

In 2010, our youngest child, Alice, became involved with a neighbour through walking her dog, Molly. During 2010/2011, Alice said this woman had foreign nationals living in her home. At the time my suspicion was aroused but the woman explained she was operating kindergarten, teaching young children to speak various languages. Her husband is a well-known sports commentator within Ireland and the UK. They drove fast cars and lived on sun-kissed beaches.

On the 26th of August 2011, the woman called and gave our daughter an ultimatum; if she did not come and collect and keep this woman’s 14-year-old English Spaniel, the dog would be put down at the vet at 4pm that day.

There was something very wrong to do such a thing to a young girl, never mind the dog. I phoned the woman and arranged to go to the house to collect the dog by 4pm. Instinct told me there was something not kosher in all this.

I began to look into this lady and found her registered in Companies House Ireland as Rainbow (Culture) Garden Multilingual. She had set up various businesses over the years, all of which failed. I wanted Alice to have nothing more to do with this woman. She was out of our lives.

Eighteen months later, in 2015, unbeknownst to me the woman had returned into Alice’s life. This time it was a business venture for “Detox Yoga” and business was booming.

She lured Alice with £30 a night to babysit. Alice refused to quit. The money was too good. A depression set upon our home. Alice was in danger, but I was talking to the wind. This woman was working on Alice; telling her I was not a great mother that she could fulfill all her dreams and have an affluent lifestyle like hers. The woman sold Alice a dream.

I was to learn much later my instinct was correct …this was deeper than it seemed. By 2016 our daughter was unrecognizable. Her behavior was foreign; she aimed raw rage at us and was abusive. This woman had a hold on our daughter. Alice was almost 18 and moved into that house. The police were no use and dismissed our concerns. When school resumed in September the woman had passed herself off as loco parentis and removed Alice out of one of the top grammar schools. I had lost my daughter!

I was furiously researching these people and found them fully mixed up in a company called Executive Success Programs, ESP and NXIVM. These people were evil. The more I dug, the more I knew the danger Alice was in. No one here would believe me; I long gave up trying to tell anyone. We were desperate.

Helpless and utterly adrift… Then I found a blog, FRANK REPORT. I was never so relieved in my life!

I was not going mad. I read how he was being investigated but it looked like this was more revenge from NXIVM because Frank was exposing them. NXIVM was too big for the average Jo to tackle. They totally destroyed anyone who betrayed them.

I phoned the number for Frank Parlato. A quiet spoken man with an air of total calm answered. He knew at once about this woman and her husband.

Allison Mack, the actress and “child catcher” arrived to stay in the home where Alice lived. She was not here to enjoy Riverdance. She was here on a mission and Alice was part of it. Allison Mack is one of many now serving time in federal prison. If not for Frank Parlato, Alice could be there as well.

We’ve promised Frank Parlato he is the only one who gets the rest of the story because we owe him the greatest debt any parent can owe: the life of our child.

Frank Parlato came to our rescue; he got our daughter out by Halloween 2016. There was much healing to be done, but without Frank Parlato’s willingness to listen and help us, our daughter would not be with us today.

I speak for Richard and myself; we do not know the ins and outs of Frank’s business life, but I keep in regular contact with him. He is a wise man who, like the rest of us, may have made mistakes.

This we do know. He has spared us total grief. He saved our daughter’s life. It can be said that Frank did the same for many others. Ours is just one of many that has not gone public about the work Frank courageously did to save our loved one. He acted selflessly to protect the most vulnerable, who had nowhere else to turn.

We would ask you to take into consideration all we have laid down in confidence today when adjudicating his case.

Our Kindest Regards,

Richard and Ruth MacMurray

We are happy to furnish you with proof of identification.

    • I believe Kim and Pimp Mack were grooming this underage girl to be Squarefoot’s sex slave.

      I just hope none of the NXIVN’S were given immunity to additional charges related to NXIVM. This is an example of something – although probably not easily prosecutable at this point – that may just be the tip of the iceberg. Who knows how many more rackateering/conspiracy crimes were committed by Allison, Kim, Squarefoot, Rosa, Dani P.or any other die hard Dead-Enders.

Join us as we reflect on our friendships within DOS and most especially with our Masters.

    • Again…pathetic. I haven’t given up hope that some of ya’ll will actually do something positive. It matters not that the FBI did break the chain of evidence. They still would have been and WERE convicted. Your hanging on to the idea that this was a great thing is not believable. Maybe you think it’s OK to lie by omission, but that just fits your narrative. I so hope that some of you will get with the program and admit this was wrong from the get go.

  • Hey this is wrong. Frankie interfered with this girls life. She had the right to get with Allison and live a better life in America. Ireland is such bullshit. Your day is coming Parlato for stopping a good thing. Kim Constable is a star with millions of followers. This girl could have been a star Fuck you asshole.

    • And which DEADENDER are you pretending NOT to be? You are definitely a supporter. Why are you afraid to come out?

      • It might be Allison herself.

        Allison is pure evil. She was Squarefoot’s groomer with young girls for him to molest. Should have done tfe full 17 years.

      So you admit that Allison Mack is a predatory lesbian!

  • Such a warm and fitting tribute to Frank – and congrats to the MacMurray’s daughter for finding her way back to the sense she was born with – and refusing those forces pulling her away – all the very best.

    and which were the ones that did stay, as you always write comments that give the appearance that you know a lot about the subject, but even contradict what was published by Frank himself. By now there should be loads of stories if it were true that she recruited teenagers.


    wHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? Kevin, Nicki, Allison herself

    • You can say what you want Shadow, but you only tell your crazy narrative in which Allison is the worst of all Nxivm players, but I repeat if she recruited teenagers there must be more stories than that of this lady from Ireland, and as I remember Frank posted this story a long time ago and it was said that the one who was trying to recruit the girl was Kim Constable and S.B. Allison was only used as support.

      But again I’m telling you if you have information that goes beyond what Frank posted himself, go ahead and share it otherwise it’s just more of your old Allison obsession routine.


        EVERY NIGHT I can sleep with what I have done. the previous day,.
        Can you?

        • NO! it is not, because the girl was not a victim of anything, it was just an attempt to recruit her, and not even one led by Allison, also as I remember it was about rainbow garden operated by Kin Constable, which means she could have worked in Ireland and not in the US.

          You, however, accuse her of recruiting teenagers, and that is something of which there is no record, it is only your prejudice about her, if Frank publishes a story where it is proven that she recruited
          teenagers, I will believe it, but if you say so, we all know about it. your OBSESSION with her, because then your affirmations have as much value as used toilet paper.

        • I agree! One has to start somewhere. If she did one, then that is MORE than enough. No kids should be put in this situation.

  • Frank-

    I took the time to read this article.

    You did a beautiful thing.

    Truly you did!

    Have a good night!

    • Nice Guy Frank’s evil. He stole my lady affection like you stole [redacted] and you dumped her and he dumped her I got left with being the cuckold like [redacted].

      Stop making him good. He’s evil like you. He’s not angel.

  • I agree! Many make innocent (or maybe not) mistakes with the IRS. Frank does not belong in prison. This man has done more good than he EVER did bad.I am certainly not condoning trying to swindle the IRS, but look at what we stand by and allow the so called Church of Scientology get away with just cuz they are afraid of David Miscavidge! Let’s get the real criminals in prison! Frank has so much to offer. Love ❤️ you, Frank Parloto! You would be the first person I want in my corner!

  • For anyone unfamiliar with Riverdance it is quite a show.
    The leadeert- of the Riverdance troupe comes from Chicago’s suburva.
    Riverdance is traditional Irish music and culture.

      • What was the high point of the nineties?
        “Disney’s Honey, we Shrunk ourselves._
        The Irish lady is quite proud of Irish culture and I linked you to an example that is quite common in America and Ireland.

  • Apparently, California Ally does not understand that Ireland is a more traditional county than California.
    Here is a song of Celtic music from Duluth Minnesota, a more traditional song the Irish lady and her fanuily might appreciate. TV actor Telly Savalas would summmer in Duluth.

    • and which were the ones that did stay, as you always write comments that give the appearance that you know a lot about the subject, but even contradict what was published by Frank himself. By now there should be loads of stories if it were true that she recruited teenagers.

      • Did you stay in NXIVM?
        Is your name Kevin or Nicki or Allison, or Robyn?
        When are you afraid to admit that you are part of the cult?

  • This is wonderful. Frank, can you share the names of some of the celebrities that wrote on your behalf? I imagine the Oxenbergs, Bonnie Piesse, Nicki Clyne all sent letters. Anyone else?

    • Why? Do have children Pyriel? Kids are afraid of monsters under the bed or on a hot night maybe want to stay in the one room that’s air conditioned! Haven’t you ever been camping when the whole family puts up a 10 person tent? You turn innocence into suspicion, WHY?

  • Holy cow!!!!!!

    Thank you Frank Report editors for supplying a map of Ireland.

    I had no idea where it is or what it looks like.

    Bless you!

    Please post a map of Sicily. I want to see where it lies on the continent of Africa.

    • Considering how ignorant of any other country most Americans are, I’m sure the majority of readers found the map useful. Particularly that there’s a difference between Ireland and Northen Ireland. If you already knew, congrats! You are in the minority of Americans who have geographical knowledge beyond your American borders.

      • Touché Nutjob!!!

        Once again, I admit, I am wrong.

        Over the course of 5 years you’ve shown me up time after time.

        I am contrite.

        Yep, there are some
        dumb motherf*ckers.
        Bring on the map graphics!!!


    • You can safely assume the article targets an American audience. Their serious ignorance of this planet’s geography is the least of their problems.

      Your irony is completely misplaced here.

  • It shouldn’t take extreme courage and a willingness to go to prison for decades or even life to blow the whistle on bad government acts done in secret. But it does. And that is an immense problem for democracy, one that all journalists should be united in fighting.

    Glenn Greenwald

  • When Chris Ambrose goes to prison and MS13 finds out he’s molested Mexican children

  • Oh lawd, Rainbow CULTural Grooming! Lol. That was a dead giveaway it was a shady group.

    Allison “Pimp” Mack seemed to be the closer. She was able to sell this group using deception. Not this time…

    In the pic of Allison, anyone notice the inverted cross above her head? Seems appropriate.

    Elle Reeve basically scolded Frank for naming DOS leadership in Frank Report. Naming DOS leadership is what ENDED DOS. It might be up to 1000 slaves by now if Frank did not step in.

    God bless Mr. and Mrs. MacMurray. Hope their daughter is going well.

    Did “Squarefoot” or any of the Dead-Enders write any negative letters to the judge?

    • The only negative letters to the judge from Nxivm/Raniere associates was Toni Natalie. She wrote two letters and an email against me. She also attended the sentencing hoping for my incarceration. She arrived all smiles but left with a prune-faced scowl.

      • The relentless campaigner on Reddit seems equally disappointed after building that same kind of hopeful crescendo. He writes on Reddit like he’s a professional writer with a professional editor and funding from somewhere who writes for a living. Who else would that be besides Chet Hardin, co-author of her book?

      • “She arrived all smiles but left with a prune-faced scowl.”
        Or, as we say in England, a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp.

        • Lol. Good saying.

          Yeah, Toni is an extremely angry, scorned and bitter person. Her book flopped. She lost much of her life and resources to “Squarefoot”. Now, she just wants to see people locked up to make her happy. I am convinced she is no better than “Squarefoot” or any of his Dead-Enders.

          One would think she learned from experience how NOT to be a horrible person.

      • Frank-

        Toni showed up?!?!?

        Not surprising, you did ruin her book sales and future movie deal, “joking”. Seriously you did!
        LMFAO!!!! I’m kidding. Her book was garbage.

        The Truth:
        Toni Natalie treated her child like absolute garbage. She starved her kid on Raniere’s advice.

        The only thing Toni deserves is what she “has”, a shitty life. Karma is a bitch and now Toni looks on the outside what she always was on the inside.

        • I am just so disappointed in Toni! She was one of my heroes watching the Vow and reading her book. Learning that several points were not true really put a damper on things. Why the need to embellish the facts? Her story was enough. This makes survivors sound insincere. I can only hope that this need to destroy you is now over, Frank. I hope it hasn’t stopped you from your need to help others. You are a good man!

      • Toni Natalie is a bitch

        Toni used both your blog & John’s blog (until she got him arrested) for her own selfish reasons.

        Toni is as evil as Keith Raniere but acts like a victim. Which she isn’t.

        She tries to pretend she hasn’t done anything wrong. What a fucking joke.

        She stoled her sons childhood & stoled his inheritance her mom & step father left him in their wills. She kept it all for herself.

        People don’t know that Toni is a criminal herself & was bed with Raniere more ways than one.

        She admits to liking to steal things from people. She’s done it while pulling the knife she stuck in theor back out laughing at the fact they have suckered written all over their forehead.

        That’s why she had the balls to write lies about Frank to his Judge & show up to his sentencing.

        When she didn’t get what she wanted, Toni slid out of the court room on her belly like the snake she is.

        How anyone can respect that bitch is beyond me.

      • I am not eager to see a photo of Toni Natalie, but from this appearance of Toni in court, I would have loved to see a photo of her, how much disappointment was written on her face after not getting the result she was hoping for.

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.
