Saw a listing for a "free" talent agency and decided to sign up, upon signing up and making you go through a ton listings and pages just to try and contact someone I found out that you had to pay in order to contact any client.

Turns out this is a classic "pay for work scam", requires you to (ultimately) pay them money in order to contact (submit) for any employment/jobs/gigs/work/etc.

It is illegal in most states for any entity/person/agency to ask for any amount of money, points, cash, coins, credits, tokens, tickets, and the like in lieu of any job, employment, gig, work, etc.

Legitimate talent agencies take a percentage or flat rate for booking after they find you work from a client.

Otherwise, only asking you to pay to contact clients does not offer the agency incentive/motivation to actually find you work since they are the ones making money by just listing you. [continued below]....
..... You make negative since you are only paying them to list you and not finding you work.

It is also illegal in most states for any entity/person/agency to ask you to pay for training/education/orientation/paperwork/filing/photoshoots/headshots/certification in lieu of work. The same reason applies as any such agency will only be motivated to sell you things instead of finding you work.
