Found this piece of good advice on genuine web site

4. Bad genealogists.
Although certifications are available from private sources, genealogists are unregulated and do not require an official license. Anyone can legally claim to be one. Genealogical data is easy to fake, and con artists have taken advantage of this. Those seeking a genealogist should rely on verifiable references or a legitimate third party such as the Association of Professional Genealogists.


And, keep in mind the genealogist's maxim:

without proof, there is no truth.
