The Wall Street Journal reported that Jeffrey Epstein was accused by several women of sexual assault. They filed separate lawsuits against JPMorgan Chase, Deutsche Bank, and the accusation that the financial institutions enabled Epstein’s sex trafficking operation.
Jane Does and Jane Dos filed the lawsuits seeking class-action status as well as unspecified damages.
The New York Post reviewed complaints and found that Epstein made payments to women for their sexual acts.
JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank were accused of making a profit rather than stopping the bankrupt financier’s illegal activities.
Both financial institutions continued to work alongside Epstein after he pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting prostitution from minors. In 2019, he died while awaiting his trial for sex-trafficking.
The case against Deutsche Bank was filed by a woman who claimed Epstein had sexually assaulted her and sold her to others between 2003 and 2018. The woman claimed that Epstein paid her for her sexual acts using cash.

Another woman, identified as a former New York ballet dancer, filed the lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase claiming that Epstein sexually assaulted her and trafficked him to her friends between 2006 and 2013. The case also alleged that Epstein took large amounts of money from the bank to pay Epstein and other women for their sexual acts.
Both lawsuits accused financial institutions of failing to recognize multiple red flags such as large cash withdrawals or payments to multiple women.
The suit stated that “Deutsche Bank” knew of Epstein’s sex-trafficking scheme and provided the financial backing for Epstein to have reliable and ready access to resources, including cash, to recruit, coerce and entice young girls and women to be sexually abused, and to cause them into engaging in other degradations.”
Deutsche Bank was sued for allegedly estimating that it would earn between $2,000,000 and $4,000,000 per year by financing sex-trafficking activities and managing the accounts of Epstein-related companies.
A spokesperson for Deutsche Bank told the New York Post that they believe the claim is unfounded and would present their arguments to court.
JPMorgan was accused of Epstein’s business relationships with Jes Staley (head of private banking), which allowed Epstein to be “untouchable.”
“With JPMorgan’s complicity Epstein was able to sexually abuse hundreds upon hundreds of women, and pay millions in hush-money without fear of detection from law enforcement. The lawsuit states that Epstein used JPMorgan’s support to cover up his criminal activities.
The complaint doesn’t allege that Staley knew about Epstein’s sex trafficking operation. The Wall Street Journal reported that Staley’s lawyer refused to comment on the matter.
According to the New York Post, JPMorgan Chase did not comment.
