Look for reviews online.
Of course they can be fabricated so it's important to check multiple sources.
There is no any list of the brokers.Besides, the discussion about the brokers (especially the recomendations) is prohibited on the forum.
You should go to some external forums which are specializing on the discussion about the brokers.
What good a huge list of hundreds of brokers would do?
The brokers (some of them ... or all of them) are licenced by the governments (not by software suppliers).And there are many criterias to select the broker, and the selecting good broker is the risk, and it is your risk in your case.It is same as selecting good EA, good indicator, good coder to code and more - it is your risk, your money and your choise.
Any recommendation about the broker to use (EA or trading system to use, signal to subscribe, and so on) are prohibited on the forum.

Of course they have a list but that is of no use to you.
Your initial question was about scam and fraudulent brokers and this forum is not the right place for that discussion and that is why i advised you to do your own research.
Usually, when there is something wrong with a company, it's not very hard to find out if you invest some time to look for it.
The fact that a broker has licenced the software from Metaquotes does not make it safe or trustworthy, you need to search for any regulating authorities for that.
In my country (and in many other countries) the company needs to be approved by the government (approved/licensed by Central Bank of my country) to be a broker and to collect money from the people/citizens on the way as deposits (yes, by Central Bank of the country). Of course, it is different from one country to an other one (different rules, different regulations/laws and so on from one country to an other one).
But I want to repeat: it is not an easy to select good broker and it is always risk. And if you are going to share your risk and your responsibility to all of us (or to some of us, or to MetaQuotes as the software development company) so - no way.You can go to the other (external) forums which are specializing on the discussion about the brokers, and you can ask them for any list, any recommendation and more.
Discussion about the brokers is prohibited on the forum, so - no any list, no any recommendation (nothing here).
