The Paris prosecutor's office said three victims who have already come forward were interviewed by investigators in August and earlier this month, the last as recently as Monday.
The French probe was opened on 23 August and is investigating the alleged rape of minors and other possible charges linked to Epstein, who is believed to have killed himself in jail last month.
