I'm not clear what you're getting at here.  Are you saying people are faking operating from the islands?  That seems unlikely.  Basic RDF is going to tell you in short order where they are transmitting from.   And for the smaller islands, the local operators are well known in the region, so it seems unlikely someone would be able to set up shop in, say, Tennessee and claim to be a new ham who just moved to Anguilla last week.
