• Ghislaine Maxwell used a fake identity to purchase her New Hampshire hideaway

  • Based on records, Maxwell bought the house for $1.7 million 

Ghislaine Maxwell, a longtime friend and ally of Jeffrey Epstein, used a fake identity to purchase the huge New Hampshire property where she stayed and was arrested on July 2.

According to the prosecutors, Maxwell changed her name to Janet Marshall and posed as a journalist to buy the mansion. The prosecutors said they found out about it after a real estate agent in New Hampshire was interviewed by law enforcement authorities, New York Post reported.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe told the court that the buyers for the house introduced themselves as Janet and Scott Marshall. Janet described herself as a journalist while Scott told the agent that he has retired from the British military and was working on a book.

“The real estate agent told FBI agent that the buyers for the house introduced themselves as Scott and Janet Marshall. Both had British accents. Scott Marshall told her he was retired from the British military and was currently working on a book. Janet Marshall described herself as a journalist,” New York Post quoted Moe, as saying.

Citing the real estate agent’s statement, Moe also shared that the couple wanted to purchase the mansion quicky and were already in the process of “setting up” an LLC.

“They told the agent they wanted to purchase the property quickly through a wire and they were setting up an LLC,” Moe told the court.

According to records, the prosecutors said that Maxwell and his partner bought the house for $1.7 million.

Maxwell was denied bail on July 14. The British socialite is accused of luring young girls so they can be sexually abused by the convicted sex offender, Epstein. U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan in Manhattan said during a hearing that Maxwell poses “a substantial risk of flight,” agreeing with the prosecutors in the case.

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Maxwell was ready to disclose all the big names who made connections and financial agreements with the late financier. Steven Hoffenberg, a former business associate of Epstein, told Page Six that Maxwell was “going” to reveal the names of everyone who benefited from Epstein’s “generosity.”

“She is going to be naming some big names – not only in terms of those who abused underage girls at Epstein’s parties – but also those who made financial agreements with Epstein or benefited from his generosity, including flying on his plane and staying at this homes,” Page Six quoted Hoffenberg, as saying.
