Scam letter(s) from Elena to Miguel (USA)

Letter 1

Hello, my dear Miguel! I was very happy to receive your e-mail and photos, I want to tell you that you are a good looking man. I was also impressed with your letter which is indication of your intelligence. It would be my pleasure to share with you some history of my family and my aspirations. I come from a small family, I grew up in Gorlovka near Donetsk. There were 4 of us including my mother and step-father and elder sister. I played many types of sports as a child, including mostly tennis and swimming. I really enjoyed the time I spent at school. I really like to learn and I had a lot of friends there. I graduated from the university 3 years ago and now I work as a teacher of mathematics. I really enjoy my work and love children so much. As for your question I live in Lugansk now practically all the time. I have never been married before. I am 25 years old now. Unfortunately I don't have a telephone at home but we could speak at the agency with help of translator. Would like it?
I don't know English at all but I work on it and hope that I'll learn it in future. I use the translation service. Since most of my days I have to work, my evenings I spent relaxing and doing the things I enjoy. When I do have a chance to listen to music,I guess its usually pop, classic and rock and roll;such as, Madonna, Roxette, Duran Duran, Queen, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling stones, Pink Floyd and as much soul music as possible. The type of books I mainly read are Russian classic. These are the type of books that will allow me to learn more about my culture and inner world of our people. Since I started communicating with you, somehow I feel a closeness with you. I am very interested in you and want to know more about the thing you like and your family. I would be happy if you tell me anything you want about yourself. Good bye for now and I hope to hear from you soon.
Your friend,
Your Elena

Hello, my dear Miguel! It was so nice to hear from you. Thank you for your greetings and Happy Valentine's day to you too! I really liked poem that you send me. I am getting that warm feeling whenever I think of you. Thank you for telling me more about you. I would be happy to meet you in Lugansk. It is sointeresting for me know your thoughts about love, marriage, and relationships. Love is the main thing for me. I would love to spend all my evenings with my beloved and then at night we can do what lovers usually do. Waking up to him would be my idea of paradise. I have been in a relationship before. I almost got married 2 years ago only to find out what kind of man he really was. I don't have anything against him because I did learn a lot from that relationship. Although I am much stronger now, I can now live each and every day with the feeling of knowing what love is. One of the most important lessons I learned from that relationship is people need to have common goals and backgrounds. My feelings on marriage is this, it is always something I wanted to do but finding the right man over here has been an obstacle. The majority of men here drink a lot and beat their wives. Now since I started conversing with you I feel so happy because it seems to me you are a wonderful man and you can make me happy. I feel really awkward to ask you about one thing but I use the Internet and translation service at the agency. I don't know English and that's why I have to use the service but it is very expensive for me. You know I work as a teacher and my salary is very low. I would really appreciate if you could help me with it. We have just begun our friendship and we need to converse many more times, but it already is a special relationship for me and I don't want lose contact with you. We have time going for us, so we should be able to find out everything about each other. What do you think about it? I am looking forward to your letter.
With love
Your Elena
