Spammers live by the rule that it's so cheap to send messages that the smallest success covers their costs, and generates profit. So I wonder how many Australian husbands Mira is aiming for in these two emails?
Looking for love email 1
Good morning! How do you do? I hope you are doing fine! Sure, I will be very glad to be friends because I am looking for friendship. I am coming to Australia in less than a month. I will be very glad to meet you in real! I got your message which consisted of only your personal email address and of your request of my pics. I tried to look through your profile but it was suspended... I hope you still want to make friends! I can't send you my pics now but I promise to send you several next time. Just write me to my email address: [REMOVED] Oops, my name is Miroslava. But everybody call me Mira I am 28. I live in Ukraine, Donetsk. Can you please, write me about yourself and send me your picture. Please! Awaiting for your reply! Faithfully, Mira.

Mira's desperate plea for love accounts for nearly 5% of all today's spam
If Mira were real, I'd wish her all the best and hope she's successful. But she's not.
This email is a phishing attempt to find real email addresses of lonely men. If the spammer sending these messages gets a reply, they know they've found someone real who is interested in romantic situations. They'll then follow up with either targeted spam, or even worse, a Ukrainian Bride Scam.
If you've received these emails, don't be fooled. Secondly, get your email filtered by MailGuard so you're only dealing with real email.
