Millions of dollars were detected flooding into a mysterious bank opened by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in the months after he was found hanged in his New York jail cell.
In documents presented to the judge, transactions show a series of multi-million dollar payments from Epstein’s estate to his bank, Southern County International, after his death.
Despite the territory approving the bank’s operation in 2014, the bank showed no signs of having been operational in the years before Epstein’s death.
In December 2019, Epstein’s estate transferred $15.5 million to the bank. The bank sent back $2.6 million, leaving $12.9 million.
There was then a withdrawal of nearly all funds before the end of the year, leaving the balance at around $500,000.
Judge Hermon-Purcell said: ‘There’s no explanation for it.’
They let this guy open his own bank! WTF! A Money laundering/blackmail scheme no doubt.
