Any popular medium on the Internet tends to get saturated with noise, and that's definitely the case with the major BitTorrent sites. Oftentimes, you'll finish downloading a torrent only to find out it's fake so it always pays to check if the uploader of a file has a reputable history and also to check out the comments that other downloaders have left.
Another way is to use SeedPeer where files that have been verified by administrators and moderators have a green check mark next to them. This saves you the trouble of authenticating torrent files. There's even a special section dedicated only to verified torrents.
