Once upon a time, a young woman named Jennifer Robertson had it all. She found the man of her dreams and together they built a life filled with luxury and adventure. But as life often goes, tragedy struck in the blink of an eye, and Jennifer's world came crashing down.
Jennifer was determined to rebuild her life after the ashes of her first marriage. At the age of only twenty-six, she took a chance and swiped right on a dating app. That's when she met Gerry Cotten, a man who, on the surface, seemed completely opposite of what she would normally go for. But something about him captivated her, and she knew she had found her match.
Gerry, an eccentric and brilliant bitcoin wizard, had built a fortune through his company, Quadriga. Together, Jennifer and Gerry traveled the world, living a life of luxury and extravagance. But everything changed during their honeymoon in India. Tragedy struck, and Gerry fell ill, passing away within hours.
Devastated by grief, Jennifer soon discovered that the nightmare had only just begun. It turned out that Gerry had left behind a colossal mess.

The Quadriga scandal took the world by storm, triggering extensive investigations and fueling wild rumors on the dark corners of the internet.

As Jennifer anxiously awaited a dead man's switch email that might never arrive, the truth began to unravel. It became clear that Gerry had gambled away a staggering $100 million of the investors' funds, leaving Jennifer to shoulder the blame.
