Epstein was discovered dead in his jail while awaiting trial in 2019 on federal charges accusing him of running a sex trafficking operation. Now, JPMorgan is being sued by Virgin Islands over Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking operation.
JPMorgan Chase is being sued by the US Virgin Islands for allegedly profiting from Jeffrey Epstein’s pedo sex business and neglecting to report questionable banking operations.
“Over more than a decade, JPMorgan clearly knew it was not complying with federal regulations in regard to Epstein-related accounts as evidenced by its too-little too-late efforts after Epstein was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges and shortly after his death, when JPMorgan belatedly complied with federal law,” said US Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George in a Thursday complaint reported by CNN.
The new action was filed less than a month after Epstein’s estate reached a $105 million settlement with George, as well as an agreement that the estate would liquidate Epstein’s islands and stop conducting business there.
“Human trafficking was the principal business of the accounts Epstein maintained at JPMorgan,” reads the filing.

The lawsuit comes after two unnamed Epstein victims filed civil claims against JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank, alleging that the banks allowed and profited monetarily from Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise.
According to the civil suit, JPMorgan is accused of having “provided special treatment to the sex-trafficking venture, thereby ensuring its continued operation and sexual abuse and sex-trafficking of young women and girls.”
“Without the financial institution’s participation, Epstein’s sex trafficking scheme could not have existed,” the filing continues.
Epstein was discovered dead in his jail while awaiting trial in 2019 on federal charges accusing him of running a sex trafficking operation between 2002 and 2005 spanning many properties.
Epstein’s huge estate was secured by surveillance cameras, secure gates, and fence during his lifetime. These are the photos from inside Jeffrey Epstein’s New Mexico ranch where the pedophile abused young girls.
