I was wondering if anyone knew how to get into freelance scientific writing? I have tried googling but I dont trust the companies out there... I dont want to get stung by a scam.

You want to write a paper and then submit it or ?
If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

The pay isn't great, but you may want to start as a copy editor for scientific journals in your area of expertise, who are always outsourcing these types of jobs. Then you can develop contacts within the company that will lead to other assignments.
In general, medical writing pays much better, so if you have a medical background, you could check into those types of jobs.
