You can do a bit of research on your own to determine if you can trust a host.
For example, do they have a number listed on their website that you can call them at? Is this whois information freely available, rather then using whois proxy services? You can check whois information at whois.sc. Are they a registered business (LLC, etc). Do they have a snail mail address they can be reached at? Things like these can go a decent way to determine if you can "trust" the provider.
