Hidden Epstein Records Indicate He ‘Won’ an $41 Million Oklahoma Lottery Jackpot Payout (Yeah, Right)- Epstein Found Alleged Dead Update

'What, you’re going to start to believe those conspiracy theories?! Please, it’s all coincidence!' IMAGE/TEXT: Medium.com

On July 2, 2008 — just one day after convicted sex offender Jeffery Epstein started to serve an 18-month jail term in Florida as Inmate No. W35755 — his New Mexico “financial planning company,” called Zorro Trust, won the Oklahoma Power Lottery payout of $41.3 million and ultimately collected nearly $30 million in after tax winnings.

Jeffrey Epstein’s, “New Mexico” spread in his black book identifies a column as Epstein, Jeffrey, Zorro Ranch, with a phone listing for Brice & Karen. The very same Brice M. Gordon, who is a manager of Zorro Trust.

 

Only in cartoon world would it be believable that a so-called “sophisticated investor” who typically is looking to scalp every arbitrage and every basis point instead tosses money at awful-odds lotteries. This stinks to high heaven.

This heist was facilitated by “computer glitch”” the day of the public drawing on July 2, 2008.

For what purpose did the mysterious Epstein “win” the lottery. Inquiring minds would like to know. Does lottery fraud go a long way toward explaining the question of just how Jeffrey Epstein became a billionaire? Fixed Lotteries, fixed gambling stakes, fixed game show winnings, fixed horse race and sporting event payoffs and fixed large raffles are some of the most effective ways for the Crime Syndicate to scam and raise money. Certainly the rigged stock market is as well. Fraudulent victim-hood charities are right up there.

There’s scant proof as to Epstein’s financial bona fides.

The Intelligencer wrote that executive-suite financiers discussed how absent Epstein was from the field.

“He’s supposed to run an enormous FX [foreign-exchange] trading firm,” said Enrique Diaz-Alvarez, chief risk officer at Ebury. “But I never once heard of him or his firm or anyone who worked or traded with him.”

And as Forbes wrote in a 2010 blog post with the very direct title “Sex Offender Jeffrey Epstein Is Not a Billionaire.” It stated that his money-management firm based in the U.S. Virgin Islands “generates no public records, nor has his client list ever been released.”

Spencer Kuvin, an attorney representing three of Epstein’s alleged victims, told the Palm Beach Post in 2008 that “in the litigation itself, we were never able to get him to produce verified financial information. The ‘nine figures’ came by negotiation. It kept going up and up and up.”

So, besides lottery fraud, could another source of Epstein’s wealth be Bernie Madoff-like Ponzi schemes? In as early as 2009, Business Insider noted that multiple red flags pointed to a possible Madoff-like fraud. One of his early partners, another Jewish criminal named Steve Hoffenberg, was convicted of running one of the largest pre-Madoff Ponzi schemes in U.S. history.

According to journalist Vicky Ward, Hoffenberg brought on Epstein in 1981 after he left Bear Stearns. Hoffenberg paid Epstein $25,000 per month for his work as a consultant for Towers Financial.

Hoffenberg pleaded guilty in 1994 to defrauding investors to the tune of $450 million.

For years, it appeared Epstein had no exposure in the Towers Financial case, until 2018, when shareholders filed a putative class action suit against him for his alleged role in the Ponzi scheme.

In a separate New York state case in 2018, Hoffenberg reportedly detailed Epstein’s alleged involvement in the scam. At this point, it is unknown if or how much Epstein pocketed from the Ponzi scheme.

Because Epstein’s wealth is held offshore and is shrouded in mystery, some speculate that he may have made his money in tax schemes or money laundering.

Investigator George Webb developed a theory that Epstein was a courier of drugs weapons and human trafficking (young girls) using aircraft and wink-wink diplomatic passports obtained from other Crime Syndicate partners.

One of Epstein’s clients was the Saudi Arabian businessman Adnan Khashoggi, who was the middleman in transferring American weapons from Israel to Iran, as part of the Iran-Contra Affair in the 1980s. Khashoggi was one of several defense contractors that he knew. And in the mid-1980s, Epstein traveled multiple times between the United States, Europe and the Middle East. (At the time of his most recent arrest, authorities discovered Epstein had a foreign passport that listed his residence as Saudi Arabia.)

While in London, Epstein met the aforementioned Steven Hoffenberg. They had been introduced through the weapons network: namely  Douglas Leese, a defense contractor; and John Mitchell, the former Nixon U.S. Attorney General.

Winter Watch Takeaway

While the focus is on underage girls, there is a sleazy layer of insider-based high-level looting and fixed collusion across multiple financial schemes.

Update Breaking News: Jeffrey Epstein pronounced dead of apparent hanging in jail cell. He was supposed to be on 24/7 suicide watch.

He went out the backdoor weeks ago, as we reported in Is ‘Jeffrey Epstein’ Being Subjected to Star Chamber Sleight of Hand? – no photos or film of him since arrested, only court renderings. Is this Epstein?

 

14 Comments on Hidden Epstein Records Indicate He ‘Won’ an $41 Million Oklahoma Lottery Jackpot Payout (Yeah, Right)- Epstein Found Alleged Dead Update

  1. Good to see your post on this. I was reading an article on this and more by Nathanael Herbert on medium.com but today it’s completely gone

    https://medium.com/@nathanielhebert/did-jeffrey-epstein-win-the-oklahoma-powerball-lottery-july-2-2008-d23d2b0933e5 (it covered the lottery and much more)

    In case you’re interested, I saved it to word, so here is what he said (I have the graphics and screenshots with the article too–i could email it to you, but I’m sure that probably is not a safe idea):

    A financial planning company based in Oklahoma City received $29.2 million on Monday on behalf of the Zorro Trust, which held the winning ticket from the July 2 drawing.
    The Daily Oklahoman, 26 Aug 2008: Trust keeps Powerball winner a mystery. Only Lottery Commission knows who is now $29.3 million richer. A financial planning company based in Oklahoma City received $29.3 million Monday on behalf of the Zorro Trust, which held the winning ticket from the July 2 drawing.

    There was also a computer malfunction that pre-empted the televised broadcast of the Sunday draw, and instead the drawing was held later and monitored by an auditing firm.
    The Daily article discloses: Trusts shield the winner or winners from public scrutiny. “We were hopeful that they would come in, but as time passed, we know they were going to form a trust,” Finks said. Instead, the July 2nd ticket of $29.3 million was paid out to a mysterious financial planning company, “Zorro Trust”. Coincidentally, on July 1st, 2008, Epstein also started to serve his 18-month jail term in Florida as Inmate No. W35755.

    So is Zorro Trust actually Jeffrey Epstein?

    The link between Jeffrey Epstein and Zorro Trust is very apparent, so the question that begs asking. Did Jeffrey Epstein receive $29.3 million in the form of an anonymous trust from the Oklahoma Powerball Lottery? And why did it happen after July 1st, 2008, just as Epstein started to serve his 18-month jail term in Florida?

    Jeffrey Epstein, his ties to the Office of Foreign Missions and Bill Clinton

    The Office of Foreign Missions, entered into a two-year lease with Jeffrey Epstein .
    It was reported in the Daily News, 23 Dec 1997, that a veritable “small castle” located on 34 East 69th Street, in Manhattan was rented out to Jeffrey Epstein by the US State Department in 1992 for $15,000 a month. In November 1996, the feds sued Epstein and Fisher. Later, an eviction order was served on July 16, 1998 and the marshal noted on the service receipt that the tenants had moved out.

    In November 1996, the feds sued Epstein and Fisher.
    The voluminous court documents in the federal case that started in Nov 1996, and saw court appearances in 1998, between Jeffrey Epstein and the United States, revealed that Richard C. Massey, an official from the Office of Foreign Missions was Jeffrey Epstein’s point of contact for his lease.

    “As you are aware, Mr. Epstein’s apparent departure from the house… have been matters of serious concern to this office,” wrote Thomas E. Burns Jr. then deputy director of the Office of Foreign Missions, in April 1996 in a letter attached to court filings. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/rosiegray/jeffrey-epstein-state-department
    The Office of Foreign Missions has a mandate to “serve the foreign diplomatic community residing in the United States ensuring that all diplomatic benefits, privileges, and immunities would be properly exercised in accordance with federal laws.” One can only wonder why the OMF would rent a building to Jeffrey Epstein, billionaire sex offender.

    On April 19, 1996, Epstein had a telephone call with the United States Department of State’s Office of Foreign Missions. The recorded details reveal that, “In 1992, OFM entered into a two-year lease with Epstein, to run from February 1, 1992 through January 31, 1994. The agreed rent was $15,000 per month. Pursuant to the lease’s Use Clause, only Epstein, his family, servants, or approved subtenants or assignees could occupy the premises.” On August 28, 1992, OFM and Epstein extended the lease for three more years, to January 31, 1997.
    Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton

    34 East 69th Street near Madison Ave. — The Office of Foreign Missions entered into a two-year lease with Epstein on February 1, 1992, which was later extended to January 31, 1997.

    Money to Candidates — EPSTEIN, JEFFREY E, J EPSTEIN & CO,
    01–30–1992, $1,000.00, Clinton, Bill (D)
    If you trace the dates when Jeffrey Epstein donated money to political candidates, it’s worth taking note, that on January 30, 1992, Epstein donated one payment of $1,000.00 to Bill Clinton. On February 1st, 1992, Jeffrey moved into his new palatial digs on 34 East 69th Street, through a deal that stemmed from within the Office of Foreign Missions.
    Surely all coincidences? Citizen journalists would like to know.

    “What you going to say the “Clinton Body Count” is real? Of course it was coincidences!”
    Here a Ponzi scheme, there a Ponzi scheme

    The Times, Shreveport, Louisiana, 04 Jun 1994, Sat
    Steven Hoffenberg, a mentor to Jeffrey Epstein was also involved in a giant Ponzi scheme. Jeffrey Epstein is also listed as an interested party in the $1.4 billion dollar Ponzi Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler case as well, so it’s truly amazing how Epstein is always one degree of separation from the “world’s largest Ponzi schemes”.
    Vanity Fair reports: Steven Hoffenberg, pleaded guilty to cheating investors out of $460 million in 1995 — at the time, the largest Ponzi scheme ever. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison and, after his release in 2013, began sounding the alarm on Epstein, who had worked at Hoffenberg’s Towers Financial Corporation after leaving Bear Stearns. He claimed that Epstein had been his co-conspirator in the scheme and that Epstein’s fortune was built on Towers Financial’s fraud. “He was great at moving money illegally,” Hoffenberg says. “He was the deeper architect to getting things accomplished.”

    Steven Hoffenberg, one time New York Post owner.
    Hoffenberg still owes his victims some $1 billion in restitution, and in 2016 he sued Epstein to recover some of the money. (He eventually dropped the suit.) Last year, two victims brought a suit against Epstein making the same claims as Hoffenberg but voluntarily dismissed the suit two months later.

    Robert Maxwell, Mortimer Zuckerman, and Steven Hoffenberg have clashed before in bidding wars to buy up media assets. In Feb. 8, 1993, Securities and Exchange Commission sued Hoffenberg, charging his debt collection company, Towers Financial, with fraudulently selling millions of dollars in securities. Jeffrey Epstein allegedly helped to mastermind the scheme.
    “You’re about to see an entire story about this supposed billionaire and the story about his financial empire, which is as big as the tragedy with the girls,” Hoffenberg says. “It’s billions of dollars, and it’s a fiasco.”

    Sorry to paste the whole article (except for graphics) but it seemed to have important info

    Also found this the other day:
    Department of State rents five story building on East 69th Street to Jeffrey Epstein in 1992

  2. James Forrestal magically died in Bethesda Hospital too! He was sane, happy, and about to be dismissed from the hospital then whoops he jumped out the window and the staff on his floor didn’t make the usual rounds that night. Go fig…

  3. Thanks Russ for all your timely updates on this matter. No way the guy’s dead, just evaporated; new name, new address, and, apparently, all the money he’ll ever need.

  4. I wonder if he is headed to the same place in Israel Osama “buried at sea” Bin Laden is now laid up in to while away his remaining days…all the 14 year-old honey pots and bags of coke you can imagine. Ah, but to be Chosenite.

  5. What are the odds that this will be investigated? What are his ties to the Mossad and Israel getting dirt on folks and blackmailing them?

  6. Ah…no connection that the NY Zorro Trust is the same as the Zorro Trust that collected in OK. Zorro is a catchy name, and I’m guessing there is more than one.

    • Oh a coinkydink theorist is here. Epstein’s Zorro Trust is a New Mexico trust. Jeffrey Epstein’s, “New Mexico” spread in his black book identifies a column as Epstein, Jeffrey, Zorro Ranch, with a phone listing for Brice & Karen. The very same Brice M. Gordon, who is a manager of Zorro Trust.

      • Hey Russ:
        This story is starting to get a bit of traction — now clowns like Owen Benjamin are regurgitating this unverified nonsense.There are a multitude of “Zorro” entities (trusts, LLC’s, et. al) located in almost every state in the US. True that Epstein has a Zorro (NY) trust that is apparently the same as the one related to the New Mexico property — but nothing you show in the article provides the names of the owners or managers of the Zorro Trust that claimed the lottery prize in Oklahoma. In fact, while LLC’s typically are required to file as business entities with the state, trusts do not have this same requirement (varies by state). In short, operating location and/or names of the principles of the trust would prove one way or another.
