Dr Ruja Ignatova is accused of defrauding investors out of $4bn (£3.3bn) by selling a fake cryptocurrency called OneCoin.

The FBI is now offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to her capture.

But who is she, or more importantly, where is she? And why is it believed she came to Dublin right before she disappeared?

Presenter Denise Calnan is joined by British journalist and author of The Missing Cryptoqueen, Jamie Bartlett.
