Milliondollarhomepage.com, has been hit hard this week by extortionists who have demanded money or face the threat of DDOS attacks. Alex Tew, the founder of the hugely popular pixel flogging site ignored the threats.

The threats were then carried out last Thursday, making milliondollarhomepage.com very difficult, if not impossible to access.

The FBI are treating this as a crimnal investigation and believe the attacks to have orginated from Russia.

Tew recently told the BBC: "I haven’t replied to any of them as I don’t want to give them the satisfaction and I certainly don’t intend to pay them any money."
