How did he send you money? Was it by check?

Regardless, what he has you doing is laundering stolen money. That doesn't mean you get to keep the money however. It is not yours, and besides it is contraband. You need to report the fraud to your local police and to the FBI at You'll probably have to turn the money over to the police.
