so long story short, I started a new job, they wanted some pictures of personal information I didn't have on me for the whole insurance and payroll bit.

2 days later they are telling me that they can't view the jpg files I sent them as they are coming up as some strange format in their words.

I want to know if this is normal, or if they are just screwing me around to get free work out of me(worst case scenario, I bring this to the attention of the company that hired them and I ask that I join that company since I am working directly with them)

I am sending them email through hotmail btw and they are receiving it through outlook.

Actually some company firewalls block weird s***. One place i applied for blocked my application.
Try putting your files on drop box or Google drive and sending a link to the picture instead.

Might be better to PDF everything.

Viruses spread through most companies via email attachments, so naturally it became commonplace to block most direct file attachments.

If the files have valuable private information then send them in a passworded Dropbox or Google drive link.

If the files don't have any information that you don't want people seeing then you can just direct link a image from imgur or something.
