What's with the fake Flickr accounts of beautiful women?

Do you guys also get followed by obviously fake accounts where the only pictures in the Flickr account are of a glamorous woman? I'm guessing these accounts are created by would-be fraudsters and/or hackers but what exactly are they trying to do via Flickr? Identity theft? Beg for money? What sort of scam?
