You can probably get some help through the US-CERT and start documenting
their malicious activity for legal action. The link below will take you
to their report submission page:

Good luck on nailing them.

First mistake was talking about it on a public forum.
If you are US based and still have the 'ransom' note as well as proof of
a DDOS attack go to the FBI with the information. I think in Canada you
need to to with the RCMP. Whomever your legal authorities are is who
you need to see.
