Does area code of phone number correspond to physical address?: It is a plausible match. The area code corresponds to the State of California, in the area of San Diego. The Laguna Hills, California phone number is in the area of San Diego.

Also to note: As of Jan 21, 2023, the phone number is an exact match for the phone number that displays on another jewellery appraisal scam site -- https://sandrasmithgems.com/ The Sandra Smith Gems site supposedly involves an independent gemologist named 'Sandra Smith.' But if you look at the 'About' page -- https://sandrasmithgems.com/about/ -- of the Sandra Smith website, you will find that the facial image is that of the same woman as 'Emily Layla,' as featured on Exquisite Gems Labs. The 'About' page for Sandra Smith largely parallels the 'About page for Exquisite Gems Labs -- https://exquisitegemslabs.com/about/ However, the physical address listed on the Exquisite Gems scam site does not match with the physical address listed on the Sandra Smith Gems scam site.

Content served up by Amazon AWS?: No
While some related websites featuring the image of the same woman's face have content served up by Amazon AWS or have had content served up by Amazon AWS in the past, this website does not appear to do likewise.

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.
