Money laundering from other scams, is my guess.

Run a few tens of thousands thru the punters' accounts before you move on.

Scatter these little payments through a network of hundreds or thousands of
these, and hope the pattern doesn't show up on TRAC.

Or this part...

... could be the trust-builder before a bigger sting to come later.
