Type of a scam Government Grant

I got a computer prompted message a couple of months ago. It sounded very legit like it was coming from the real government. I called back today. She told me I was eligible for a government grant because I was not a felon. She asked what I was going to do with the money. When I said buy property and start a new career, she transferred me to Susan Wade w/the Federal Government Grant Department. She is Arabic. Her ext is 107. She asked if I was married or single. She offered me $11,300. She emphasized I could not do anything bad with it. My approval number is MA143. She wanted me to pay a $200 insurance security bond. She told me to go to Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid or Starbucks. I was to call her from the parking lot once I got there, and she would guide me through the whole thing.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I was contacted by a guy named Max Brown he gave me his badge id number qi5510 and told me that I was awarded $9,000 of grant money from the government for being an outstanding citizen, no criminal background, and being a woman. After I expressed my concern on the government giving away free money he said that it was money collected from charity. I continued with the conversation and he told me the money was going to be wired to me through western union at Walmart and gave me the tracking number 0230901103 and the name as Federal Reserve Bank. Again I expressed my concern because he said it was collected from "charity" and not a bank but continued with the conversation. He then told me that before I could claim my grant I had to go to Walmart while being on the line with him and get an "activation voucher" and also deposit a refundable $200. After I told him that his company’s name and address was on several scam warning websites he insisted that many people use their company to scam but that it wasn’t a scam. I read him a couple of the complaint comments and he hung up ??

They said I won a grant for $9000. I was chosen because I have not filed bankruptcy. Asked if I would like that deposited into may bank account and I hung up.
