Two other related gemologist / jewelry appraisal sites that appear quite similar in nature, but which feature other individuals, are:

Holly Bradarsh

Tony Kochell

Though Alison Kochell and Tony Kochell appear to have the same surname, there does not appear to be a supposed claim to these two fictitious identities being related. The physical addresses listed on the respective sites appear in different U.S. states.

Another nine
related jewelry appraisal websites, featuring a different woman from Alison Kochell, but the same woman as each of the other sites in the grouping, are:

Sandra Hall Gemologist -- see

Zaee Harris Gemologist -- see

Carola Johnson -- see

Carola Kemp
Cynthia Lewis, Royal Glamour Gems
Martina Paugh Universal Gems Diamonds Experts -- see (Alison Gemstones and Universal Gems Diamonds Experts use the same phone number and the same incomplete U.S. physical address.)

Andreea Sasser Gemologist
Sandra Smith Gemologist
Claudia Denise Wallace Gemologist

With one or more of the sites involving the same woman, the woman may attempt to reach out to men on dating / social networking sites, under whichever alias.

After having supposedly busted her laptop, she may attempt to get someone to send her a replacement laptop to her, in Turkey, where she claims to be working temporarily.

Given the high number of websites in question, though, it's hard to say how many angles there could be for different targets and how many people may be working behind the websites and their presumably related profiles on various dating / social networking sites.

This may or may not be a tactic that could be deployed with related scam jewelry appraisal sites, such as Alison Gemstones.
