I don't think this has anything to do with Amazon.

I can tell you that he uses a proxy server in Texas, but my best guess
is he's from Hong Kong based on his email domain.

I don't know his motives but such stories of DDoS attacks originating in
states of the former Soviet Union, and in China for that matter, are not
that uncommon. In fact, the huge recent DDoS attack on was
based in China. So maybe we shouldn't trust Chinese either. (j/k)
However, there are criminals everywhere.
