Email Scam: Got Robbed in London, Send 2550 GBP

A new email scam: Got robbed in London, send 2,550 GBP.

The scam email seems to come from a person “known” to you. Here is the full scam email. 
I hope you get this on time.
        Am sorry I didn't inform you about my trip to London for a Program, I'm presently in London and I'm having some difficulties here because i was robbed on my way to the hotel and the thieves made away with all my cash, cell and other document, presently i have limited access to internet, I will like you to assist me with a loan of (2550 British pound sterling) to sort-out my hotel bills and to get myself back home, or any amount you can lend  so i can make arrangements and return back. I have spoken to the embassy here but they are not responding to the matter effectively, I will appreciate whatever you can afford to assist me with, I'll Refund the money back to you as soon as I return, let me know if you can be of any help. I don't have a phone where I can be reached. Please let me know immediately.

The sender has limited access to Internet but yet can send emails??

It goes without saying - never respond to such emails.
