Jeffery Epstein, the renowned sex trafficker, has passed away, but his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell is incarcerated. The women who were abused by Epstein and Maxwell are now pursuing others who they claim were also engaged in the massive, multi-year scam.
The New York Times reported earlier this year that a woman who had accused Prince Andrew of sexual assault as part of Epstein’s operation had settled with Epstein for $500,000 in 2009, but was still seeking retaliation from the Prince.
“More than a dozen lawsuits are seeking millions of dollars in compensation for women who say they were sexually abused by Epstein, sometimes for years at his homes in Manhattan, Florida, New Mexico, the Virgin Islands, and Paris,” the Guardian then reported, adding, “In 2019, a woman accused Epstein of abusing her in Florida when she was only 14 years old.”
Two women who have claimed Jeffrey Epstein of sexual assault have launched a lawsuit against the banks that allegedly processed Epstein’s money transactions with the women used in the scenarios.
One lady alleges she was sexually exploited by Epstein and sold to his associates for almost 15 years, from 2003 to 2018. In addition, she was compensated in cash for sex activities, according to her lawsuit.
The unidentified women have filed separate claims against JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank, alleging that the banking titans prioritized profits over stopping the convicted pedophile’s alleged sex trafficking network.
The women, named only as Jane Does, filed the claims in federal court in New York on Thursday, seeking class-action status and unspecified monetary damages, according to complaints read by The Post.
The complaints say that both banks aided and participated in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking by allowing him to pay women for sex acts, as well as benefited from his operations.
The Hill reported that “Two separate lawsuits were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Thursday, alleging that the banks knowingly benefited from ‘assisting, supporting, and otherwise providing the most critical service for the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking organization to successfully rape, sexually assault, and coercively sex traffic’ the women, despite knowing about Epstein’s dealings.
The complaint asserts that Epstein could not have maintained his sex trafficking enterprises without the “help and cooperation” of a financial institution. Attachment to a bank allowed Epstein’s operations’special treatment’ and ‘the illusion of legality,’ according to the complaint filed against Deutsche Bank, as reported by The Hill.
In 2008, when the disgraced financier pled guilty to soliciting prostitutes from a teenager in Florida, both institutions collaborated with him. In 2019, Epstein died in a Manhattan federal prison cell while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking allegations.

In the suit against Deutsche Bank, it is stated that during that time, the bank ignored several red flags including payments to numerous young women and large withdrawals of cash, the suit said. New York’s regulator found Epstein, his related entities and associates had more than 40 accounts at Deutsche Bank, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first broke news of the lawsuits.
