Shawn Merriman was the head of a thriving investment business pulling in millions. But unknown to investors, Merriman was running a Ponzi scheme and ripping off his family and friends. Andrea Merriman was married to Shawn for nearly 20 years. She remembers the day Shawn told her he¿d been running a fraud for 15 years and nearly everything she knew about her marriage was a lie.
