Thank you for using Just Answer.

You should report the matter to you local FBI office and you can file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) which is a joint task force between the FBI and foreign law enforcement. What makes it so hard to track down and actually catch these scammers (and you're right, they do often work in groups, taking shifts) is that most operate in foreign countries, outside of the jurisdiction of the U.S. authorities, hence the IC3 was created to investigate these types and other types of cyber crimes.
