Content served up by Amazon AWS?: Yes & No
Back in May (around a month ago), content did appear to have been served up by Amazon AWS. However, that does not appear to be the case presently.
Of the three Amazon AWS links above, the first is a reference to a photo of Andreea Sasser. This did display a photo of a blonde woman previously, when this writer visited the Andreea Sasser scam site. When last checked, however, the Amazon AWS link for the photo is still contained within the code for the web page, but the picture did not come up.
As per the second link, for the logo, the logo was previously loaded up via Amazon AWS. The logo now loads up instead via:
The third Amazon AWS link for the credentials image is a link for the jewelry-related organizations that the fraudster is supposedly affiliated with. The Amazon AWS link for this no longer appears to work. As such, on the Andreea Sasser About page, this information does not come up. It does come on the home page, still, as that has been set to come now from:
Given the above, the site's author has failed to reconfigure (or chosen not to reconfigure) the website to load up the image from a non-Amazon AWS location. Whereas, for the logo for the scam site, Amazon AWS is no longer entrusted to load up such an image. Depending on the web page within the site, Amazon AWS may
or may not be entrusted to load up the image containing the credentials of jewelry-related organizations to which Andreea Sasser is supposedly connected.
Also to note: Significant portions of this website appear to have been used in creating a Claudia Denise Wallace website (claudiadenisewallace.com), which is another jewelry appraisal scam site, which had been featuring a photo of the same woman, but under the alias of, not surprisingly, Claudia Denise Wallace). A scam website for Julia Dimaggio (juliadimaggio.co) would also appear to borrow from this Andreea Sasser scam website. (At the time of posting this, Amazon AWS had previously, but is no longer, feeding content to the Claudia Denise Wallace site. However, Amazon AWS is feeding content to the Julia Dimaggio site.)

This 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.

Most, if not all, of the above websites cite either a single address located in the U.S. or a primary address in the U.S. The Andreea Sasser scam website is different in that it lists two addresses, neither of which is in the U.S. In addition, the phone number, with a +44 country code, is one based out of the United Kingdom, rather than the U.S.
