If someone you have never met in person face to face but only through the internet asks you for money no matter what the reason it will be a scam 100% of the time.
You should stop all contact with the scammer and any associates as they are all part of the scam.
Do not tell them you know they are scammers.
Do not send them to our Scam warning website.
You should file a police report.
You should contact wherever you sent the money from (Western Union, Bank, Etc..) and try to get any payments reversed.
If you sent money by Bank transfer then you should also get your account closed and re-opened using a different number so the scammer cannot abuse it.
Please post as much information about the scammer as possible to warn others. If you are unsure what or how to post you can forward all of it to my E-mail address which is below.
E-mails, E-mail addresses, Phone numbers, Photos & Documents are all helpful and will save others from getting scammed.
ETA: You've got mail.
