I'm afraid that there is absolutely no way this is legitimate. You've lost the money you've already sent them, do not send any more. Report them with any correspondence you have to local law enforcement, block and cease communicating with them. And look out for other scam attempts in the future, you've unfortunately shown that you are an easy mark now.
