To check on the reputation of a journal, it is generally recommended to look up the journal name in a subscription tool we have called Cabells and in the Journal Citation Reports. If you don't find the journal in question listed in those places, that's not necessarily a problem. It just means that the journal is not on their radar or not within their scope.
We recommend also viewing a checklist located here: https://url2.mailanyone.net/scanner?m=1oxWdO-000jsx-5n&d=4%7Cmail%2F90%2F1669136400%2F1oxWdO-000jsx-5n%7Cin2l%7C57e1b682%7C28163552%7C13600742%7C637D00323435521171388C8456D79E3B&s=JLq1U5TJNALglAHCk_65xk26U_M&o=%2Fphth%3A%2Fttskcinuecskhgtbmjor%2Fi.%2Fslanruo This site advises authors to consider whether the publication has a clear submission policies, whether it is open about charging fees if it does so, whether it is indexed anywhere, whether it appears in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) if it claims to be open access, and whether it appears in the ISSN portal. Of course, it's possible for any journal to not disclose publishing fees until they've accepted a manuscript, so keep that in mind.
