My stranded scammer has luxurious taste

I emailed him saying:
"Hi again
I'm pleased to help.  What's the name of the hotel you're staying in in Edinburgh?  I should be able to get to Western Union later today."
Unfortunately he wasn't able to tell me the hotel he's "staying at", he just said:
"Please kindly send me the money as soon as possible." 
Earlier the address he gave was:
1 Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2EQ, Scotland
It didn't take too much detective work to establish that this is the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh where rooms start at P3,500 per night.  Of course ALL of this is lies, he's nowhere near Edinburgh, he's more likely somewhere in Lagos but you'd think he'd at least try to get his story straight don't you?
