How the FBI cracked a "sextortion" plot against pro poker players
At 8:05am on the morning of December 1, 2010, an FBI search warrant team swarmed up to a Silicon Valley home on an unusual misson: find the “sextortionist” who had been blackmailing pro poker players over the Internet. One agent pounded on the door and shouted out, “FBI!” Movement was heard inside, but no one opened the door. The agent knocked again, but the door stayed shut, so out came the battering ram. Wham—the door gave and FBI agents flooded inside, guns drawn in the dim light.
