Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
This will be a common internet scam. I would expect you are being asked about a family inheritance or money held overseas for you. They will ask you to send money over to facilitate transfer. You will never hear from them except to ask for more money and you will never see the money again ever.

Is there any way that I can get any of the money back under a threat or something. would Interpol police have any ruling over them.
You can complain to Interpol but the fraudsters will have long disappeared. I am sorry but you will never see your money again. You can ask for a refund but they will not reply or give excuses. They are experienced crooks and will rapidly shut up shop and disappear.
