Where Did Jeffrey Epstein Get His Money?
« on: July 13, 2019, 03:06:08 PM »
Pretty interesting theories out there. This is guy is said to be a billionaire, but has no known clients and has never traded with anyone.

The quantian theory makes a lot of sense to me, but it also might just be curve fitting.

My hunch is that his specialty was "tax avoidance" for the very wealthy.  Look into the transfers into various charities connected to Epstein - why would Les Wexner just send over $21 million to Epstein's charity for Jeff to take all the credit giving it away?  Why would Les sign over the NYC property for practically no money (this one could have been in lieu of Financial Trust's fees for the year or something similar).  Another charity of Epstein was launched with $10 million that appears to have come from Leon Black.

All of the USVI entities, the strange charitable flows - looks like he was peddling tax strategies to me.  Likely with plenty of 'dirt' and blackmail thrown in for "stickiness!"


Also - it does appear that he traded through Bear Stearns earlier in his career (Ace Greenberg said he has gone from working at the firm to becoming an important client - he was fired from Bear for loaning money to a friend to buy stock - likely an insider trade - dating a secretary, and expense account irregularities).  He traded through Deutsche Bank most of his career.  Looks like he lost a lot of money on the Bear Stearns collapse and another $50m through the collapse of a Bear hedge fund.

Example number 1 of criminal justice system being totally fu**ed?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/teacher-jailed-20-years-having-144000464.html

Chick who has a clean record, along with likely some mental issues and a sex addiction gets 20 years for doinking a 13 year old who supposedly was obsessed with her and pursued her relentlessly. Not to mention, is it not a fantasy of pretty much every teenage boy to screw the hot teacher at school? Epstein got what, 12 months for trafficking and rapings galore of teenagers around the same age? Hopefully he gets 20 per kid going forward.

I'm waiting for the movie.  I am sure Harvey Weinstein would have loved to green light this one.  alas...

If he was blackmailing rich people like Clinton and Trump I hope they get him to sing like a bird.   Endless entertainment!

They just need to get hold of his blackmail material ( tapes?). I agree it could be interesting. Also, do all scumbags bank with Deutsche Bank?
To be a realist, one has to believe in miracles.

Definitely another inside job. This tool, or someone who was likely involved in this, clearly had to have pulled some strings to get this guy in the position to off himself. How else does this happen after he already tried and failed, and thereafter was placed on suicide watch. Yet still manages to commit suicide...Justice will not be served here and a lot of horrible people are currently breathing a lot easier.
