Default Paid externships, legal and valid?

Hi guys, I don't have any contacts that can get me any sort of usce so I must turn to this kind of services. Ive seen lots of mixed reviews even on the big ones like americlerckships and fmgportal, and some people even say they are a scam.

But what I want to know if is this so called externship legal? We as FmGs are not suposed to have any kind of interaction with the patien so I dont know how will this look on my application, also, does it really add some weight to my application the fact that I did an externship?
