    In general, the only way to properly fix it -- as it will run through every bit of your data -- is to redo the import and force a character set at the beginning, probably "latin1". The data that we receive from MySQL has been double encoded; doing that change prevents the extra encode.

    if I set latin1 I get the following error when I import custom user fields and I can't continue with the import:

    Mysqli statement execute error : Incorrect string value: '\xE1\xE0\xE9\xE8\xED\xF3...' for column 'match_regex' at row 1
