"You guys have the following three options," Kheda wrote in a December 2007 e-mail included in the federal indictment. "1. Let me play again on my master account (with everything that was on it), and I will report everything when I come across a vulnerability. 2. Pay me $1500 and you will never hear from me again. 3. Don't reply to this e-mail and you are gonna wish you picked one of the other options."
