India Oxenberg is an American actress who was reportedly involved with NXIVM, an organisation that has been categorised as a pyramid scheme, an alleged sex-trafficking operation, and an alleged sex cult. She was associated with the organisation for several years before her mother, actress Catherine Oxenberg, rescued her in 2018. A native of Los Angeles, Oxenberg grew up in an affluent family but had a troubled childhood. Her father, William Weitz Shaffer, had pleaded guilty to a massive drug smuggling operation in the 1990s. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Oxenberg joined the entertainment industry and made her debut in the 2002 TV movie ‘The Vector File’. Ironically, it was her mother who introduced her to NXIVM in 2011. However, she eventually came to understand the effect it was having on her daughter. In early 2018, the founder of NXIVM, Keith Raniere and associate and actress Allison Mack were arrested and their company ultimately ceased operating. Oxenberg has been since spending time with her family and close friends.
