Private agents allegedly threatened to report Cannon to the county sheriff if he didn’t fork the card, Cannon told the outlet.
Cannon said he mistakenly purchased the as-yet-unreleased version of March of the Machines: The Aftermath instead of the game titled March of the Machines, which was released last Friday.

Cannon eventually agreed to remove the unreleased footage of the game, and the card company “apologies for taking the drastic step of sending Pinkerton to my doorstep,” Cannon said.
