And then if i want to get this money, i have to pay us$ 500 first. i, myself gave all money to them instead of to my school. Now, i don't know what should i do, what will i tell my parents. Why they can do that? i only want them give back to me US $400 in stead of US $500 because US $100 is what i spend for 2 months.

Scam!

This email claiming to be anti-scam is a scam itself.

Just look at the @hotmail and @yahoo address, and how they are asking you for personal information by email.

Beware.
