    These days, its good to check every website you want to do business with to know if they are real or scam because they are many scam websites everywhere. Sometimes you may fall into hands of hackers who wants to steal vital information from you or fraudsters who want to defraud you. The best way to do this is to run a quick review on the website, email addresses or phone number of the person. Sometimes you may have to go through all his social media profiles to certify that he is legit.

    Apart from this google is trying to eliminate scam site by itself through algorithms obviously they dont get all of them. I would also recommend following up with past clients or business that the site claims to have worked with. You also get websites dedicated to exposing and listing scam sites and even phone numbers.

    you can youse the site operator ( site:www.example.com ) this will bring up all the pages google has indexed on that site
    secondly i would use Insite:"name of the site " or "phone number" this will bring up places where this site is mentioned and many of these mentions may be on sites complaining about scams.
