Should I pay for a talent scout agent?

I tried out for an audition not realizing if I made it I would have to pay 900$ for a talent scout to sponsor me. He said he can make me famous but I dont think I should have to pay for it. I cant trust him right away, and I think he should get a certain percentage of my earnings if I make any. My family cant afford it right now but I want this so bad.

It's a scam, if he were a true scout and saw talent in you, he would be paying you.

There's an old saying, A fool and his money are soon parted, don't be a fool !

No you shouldn't trust me you'll get screwed if he can really make you famous he should have other people he's made famous ask him if he has ask him for proof he should have connections putting your name out there is easy the hard part is keeping it out there trust me there's no reason you should be paying 900$ any money you make an agent takes a certain percent unless your buying posters & posting them everywhere there's no reason you should pay

He should be sponsoring and supporting you. He makes his money by getting a percentage of your earnings from the jobs he gets you.
I don't believe you shouldn't have to pay him up front.

Never pay for a talent scout. They are trying to scam you. A real talent scout would earn money through you being successful because they get a cut of what you make.
