Three alleged victims of financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein filed lawsuits Tuesday in Manhattan federal courts against his estate, claiming he sexually abused them before and after his controversial plea deal in 2007. 

A total of five civil suits have been filed against Epstein's estate since his suicide on Aug. 10. The latest lawsuits provide details as to how Epstein allegedly lured his victims.

Two women were 17 years old, while the third woman was 20. Epstein had them read “Massage for Dummies” books and forced them to give massages to his powerful friends.

The then-20-year-old accuser claims she was introduced to Epstein through his friend Ghislaine Maxwell, who acted as a sexual instructor, providing tips on the "proper way" to pleasure Epstein.

One woman claims Epstein forced her to marry another woman, who wasn't a U.S. citizen so that they could remain in the country and recruit more women for his sex trafficking operation. Another account involved Epstein helping to fund an accuser's dance career but it included her performing various sexual stretching exercises. 

"We want to hold the Epstein organization to account first, it's not primarily about money," said attorney Stan Pottinger, who represents 20 accusers, which includes the three women.

Epstein was arrested on July 6 for allegedly trafficking dozens of underage girls as young as 14 for sexual purposes in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, and faced 45 years in prison. He had pleaded guilty in 2007 to state charges in Florida and received a lighter sentence. 

It was recently revealed that Epstein had written a will for his $577 million fortune two days before he died. Epstein's brother is the only listed heir.

Epstein made his fortune on Wall Street in the early 1980s at global investment bank Bear Stearns, before starting his own financial consulting firm.
