No, you're being scammed. Usually they are asking for money up front for taxes, a bond, etc. but it is a scam. No legitimate operation ever asks for money up front for anything.

If you go to Google and run a search for:

consumer protection bureau scam

you'll find a bunch of articles that discuss this same scam by that name and by other names as well.
