    I remember seeing this film on TV in 1963 approx. The film opens with an office scene with about 25 men on the telephone desperately trying to contact people with a view to arranging a meet but not with them. One such meet then takes place where the victim is drugged and compromising photos are taken with the opposite sex. He is then then sent a sample, blackmailed but not for money and offered a way out. He is to undergo plastic surgery to alter his appearance and shipped off to a paradise island, meanwhile a body is substituted and the gang claim a death insurance payout. All is good for a while on the island with free sex, etc., but he becomes tired and wishes to return to the mainland, which he does under guard even to visit his wife without recognition. However when he decides he has had enough of the paradise and make a permanent return he ends up in the office (opening scene) not realizing that if he manages to arrange a meet he will end up in the grave as the substitute body. Film ends as he is carried away struggling on a stretcher by 2 men in white coats.

    It does sound like Seconds more than a bit, just the paradise island part is off.
