Ones from legitimate organisations should be safe - if you go to the actual university/institute, there should be links. However, the used to be (at least, I havn't seen any lately), plenty of fakes who were just trying to scam money.

Depends what you want to do with them. I am doing online courses without getting a degree:

https://www.coursera.org/courses

I only do them to specialize/learn new stuff. They do not offer a degree or certificates (most courses don't) but the knowledge is the same as if you would take the course at Princeton or Stanford etc. In the end of the day, to do properly a job you do not need a framed paper on a wall, but knowledge.

Some keywords are accreditation (e.g. by FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation)), European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) if it's in Europe, certified by some governmental organisation/authority, equivalence of the degrees to state-controlled universities.
