Also to note:
* The phone number above matches one that had been used by a now-defunct Stacey Lambert Gems site. More info on this site can be found at: https://www.watchforscams.com/stacey-lambert-gemologist-staceylambertgemscom-date-of-posting-may-10-2023.html An archived copy of the Stacey Lambert Gems site is available at: https://web.archive.org/web/20230505165835/staceylambertgems.com

* The Lezlie Sasser Gems website may be a sort of clone of a now-defunct Reenie Hanson Gems website. This is indicated, in part, as the ‘About’ page of the Lezlie Sasser Gems site references ‘Reenie’ twice, where one would expect to see ‘Lezlie’ referenced. Info on the Reenie Hanson site can be found at: https://www.watchforscams.com/reenie-hanson-gemologist-reeniehansongemscom-date-of-posting-may-9-2023.html Archived copy of site available at: https://web.archive.org/web/20230724035924/reeniehansongems.com

Content for Lezlie Sasser Gems site served up by Amazon AWS?: No
While some related websites featuring the image of the same woman's face 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, it's hard to say how many angles there could be for different targets and how many people and/or organizations may be working behind the websites and their presumably related profiles on various dating / social networking sites. However, one possibility is that a proverbial targeted victim is being recruited, via a romance scam, as a conduit to ship other people's jewellery -- from North America, Europe or Australia -- off to Africa and/or the Middle East. (It seems to be jewellery from Canada and/or the U.S., in this case.)

It's possible that people may send their jewellery for appraisal, possibly to a home address listed on a jewellery appraisal website. (This would be the supposed business location.) The 'jewellery appraiser' may have an address located somewhat close to the person who wants an appraisal. The romance-targeted-victim, netted via the romance scam, may then, in turn, ship that jewellery off to their loved one, under the context of doing her a service, as she is temporarily traveling abroad. The romance-targeted-victim may then be facilitating a theft against a jewellery appraisal customer. In doing so, the individual
shipping jewellery out-of-continent may be an unwitting accessory to a crime. Once the jewellery reaches Africa or the Middle East, it won't be coming back.

There have been many scam sites that feature the photo of the SAME WOMAN'S FACE, but each under a different alias, including some sites with corresponding Watch for Scams report pages. Several sites are as follows:
