‘Jane Doe,’ former ‘sex slave’ who escaped
From HBO’s The Vow
When the Frank Report came out I was in shock. I didn’t know about the branding, or Keith’s initials on the brand. I started for the first time to realize that things were not as they seemed.
Frank was fearless. And once I’d given him this information, he ran with it, And he didn’t stop.So he’d put out these blogs. Sometimes 3 clogs a day, with more and more information and people started calling him, and giving him more information. So he was an unstoppable force.

Frank Parlato, the guy who originally revealed the sex slave cult around Keith Raniere…. Parlato turned on Nxivm with the fury…. He carpet-bombed Raniere and Nxivm with attacks on his website…. More than two years into his anti-Nxivm campaign, Parlato revealed women were being branded in a secret ceremony. The New York Times confirmed the story in October, which led to a Federal investigation. Nxivm will never be the same.

Frank Parlato was running a web site called the Frank Report. A site that had been actively investigating Nxivm for years. Frank knew Keith well: because he ran public relations for Nxivm for 9 months in 2007. But when Frank discovered some suspicious financial activity, Keith fired him. Frank fought back, and the Frank Report was born.
Parlato consistently publishes interviews with defectors, insights into the cult-like ways of the organization, and anything that seems slightly suspicious.
Members of Nxivm were forbidden from reading it, which didn’t stop some members from following Frank.

Who can we bring in to help us? Frank Parlato. He’s helped a lot of people get out.
Introduction to the Lost Women of Nxivm
Narrated by Michele Wong
After decades ruling a criminal enterprise, Raniere never thought a whistleblower could bring him down. But Frank Parlato did just that. And he’s not finished exposing Raniere’s misdeeds. Parlato has unique access to victims, and former NXIVM members who were in charge of hiding the cult’s activities..

In Mexico we owe it to Frank Parlato to have learned about the issue of NXIVM and the implications that various characters linked to Mexican politics and the business circle of our country had. Thanks to the information offered on frankreport.com, influential Mexican media such as Aristegui Noticias, MILENIO. began to address the matter. So did widely read columnists like Salvador García Soto, Francisco Rodríguez and León Krauze….
Thanks to the informative work of franreport.com, the complaints about the practices of Nxivm and Raniere were sustained. Parlato did not mind having threats of lawsuits for his informative work, which he has continued and is now an obligatory reference for anyone who wishes to obtain information on this topic.
Frank is stubborn and skilled, and so he continued to dodge attacks until things turned in his favor, to the point of becoming a major factor in the downfall of Raniere and his criminal enterprise.
Frank Parlato used to work for Keith and NXIVM. He left on bad terms, and the company went after him. To fight back, he created the blog called the Frank Report, to share news he was hearing about NXIVM. … When Frank came out with the news [of the branding] it set the whole organization into panic. A lot of people began asking questions. And that was the idea – it’s not just to expose what’s going on, it was also about getting people to leave, getting people away from danger.

Q Now, at that time, was there any blog coming out that was covering what was happening with DOS?
A Yeah, there was this blog called The Frank Report that started blogging about all this and blogging about DOS and blogging about different people in the NXIVM community….
Q And at some point, did you appear on the blog?
A Yeah…. an article came up online that said that I was a sex slave of Keith Raniere’s.
Q And, so, what happened after that?
A It was, like — it was just that, like, tiny bit of courage or whatever I needed. It was like that flash of reality and it was just, like, the last little thing and I was like, “okay, no. Just no. Like, no. What I thought that I was getting into back then was a women’s empowerment group and now there is something [Frank Report] saying that I am somehow a man’s sex slave? … Now is this little window when I can get out, and I’m taking it.”
Frank Parlato is a crusader for justice. He gives hope to the hopeless. Light to those that are lost. And friendship and understanding to forgotten victims.
When there is no one else to call, call Frank Parlato. He fights for justice, for victims, and for their families. And brings justice to the oppressed.

First of all, Frank must be commended for his intrepid integrity in pursuit of the truth. Rarely are people so brave as to take on such a huge project and relentlessly go after evil, lies and also inertia on the part of the so-called authorities.
He has kept everyone on their toes and on tenterhooks; tantalizing his many readers who look forward to the next denouement.
I hope people who have been following these events will understand the danger of giving over one’s thoughts and attachments and devotion to cults and weirdos instead of taking responsibility for their own lives.
Nobody is coming here to save anybody nor is anyone necessary!
Well done Frank, and I know you have been under attack and have had many threats!

Frank Parlato… worked for years to expose the cult… exposing its dark side.

He turned it around on them. What Frank Parlato did was one of the most epic takedowns in media history.
Under the condition that he would not disclose my name, I told Frank about my branding experience, so that he could expose DOS in time to stop the next session. From my hotel room in Toronto, I told Frank everything. Releasing that secret was the biggest relief so far.
We were successful. The word about Frank’s blog spread in the community, and because of this heat the next branding ceremony was called off.”
Frank Parlato achieved more than any single outlet could have in the fight to bring Keith Raniere to justice. It is not hyperbole to say Keith wouldn’t have seen his day in court without the Frank Report.
