I made a profile on freelancer.com and a potential client messaged me but be they said I have to pay a $30 refundable deposit. Is that normal? As far as I knew I shouldn't pay for a job.

Scam! You should never have to pay for anything. These big job boards like Indeed and Freelancer are hard to gain clients from. And if you do find a legit client then they only want to pay you $2/hr as the competition is stiff on these job boards. 

Have you checked out our VAinsiders Club yet? We do our best to pre-qualify the jobs that come through our board and won't even accept jobs that are less than $20-25/hr on it. Being that we are a small membership there isn't much competition either and usually only 1-3 VAs are applying for the same job on our board. Landing just one client from our job board pays for the monthly membership too. ;)
