Heather Morgan, who performs under the stage name Razzlekhan, was arrested in February during one of the largest illegal asset seizures ever. Along with her husband, Ilya Lichtenstein, the two allegedly managed to steal billions of dollars worth of bitcoin from a digital exchange in an online heist. It sounds like the plot from a crime movie, but it’s no tale.

Morgan is a part-time rapper and occasional contributor to Forbes. Lichtenstein founded an ad agency that enjoyed $1.5 million in venture capital start-up money from investors like Mark Cuban. You’ll never believe how they got wrapped up in this bizarre tale.
