Can I legally open an “Onlyfans” account for my girlfriend?

My girlfriend wants to start an only fans account to make some extra money to help pay off her debt. Thing is she doesn’t have bank account of her own. I would let her use mine and just give her what she earns in cash. The only fan would be open in my name, but she be the one uploading the content. Is this legal.

Whether or not letting your girlfriend operate a business using your name and bank account is a good idea, you should also ask yourself how much you trust her. And whether she shouldn’t also really be opening up a bank account of her own at some point in her life.  With this idea, your entire credit/financial identity would be vulnerable to theft during this project, by her or by anyone else with access to her computer or phone, to say nothing of whatever money is in your bank account, which could quickly disappear. She also might someday find a new “boyfriend,” who is maybe less honest than you. Finally, any income from the commercial website which she wants to set up in your name, would be yours alone for income tax purposes, so how do you feel about paying her income and sales taxes, to say nothing of the expenses of preparing the necessary business tax returns for income and sales taxes? So, even if it’s not illegal for two people to use one bank account, (assuming momentarily that you don’t need to lie to your bank for all this, which is illegal), then still; for a commercial account with income, might this not turn out to be a very bad idea someday? If she does anything illegal on her “only fans” site, you might also find yourself becoming a money launderer for a criminal enterprise like child pornography, in addition to a party to the crime itself, either of which can be hazardous to your freedom. In short, I would not do this without some serious, paid legal advice answering each of these questions, rather than relying upon free commentary here, which is most definitely NOT intended as legal advice online.
