Just for the record, here's a list of possible predatory journals.

It's quite an extensive list, and by examining that list it might be possible to identify some sort of pattern common to most predatory journals.

Academic identity theft
This is a blatant example:
Academic identity theft: if you are one of the 2,000 people invited to contribute to a volume supposedly co-edited by Garry Hagberg, you'll want to read this

Philosopher Garry Hagberg (Bard College) writes:

It has come to my attention that my name has been used without my knowledge or permission to support a project in which I have no involvement whatsoever. ...

Re: How to Tell?
I don't really think that many people on the street would even try to look at a scientific journal anyway. Lots of people on the street think that National Geographic is a scientific journal. That won't change quickly.

I hear ya.

I remember some creationist ranting here about the fact that somebody without a doctoral degree had a letter published in Scientific American.

I also remember someone ranting that Scientific American was influential in keeping atheists in control of science.

(Now that I think about it, I am probably remembering two posts by a single person).

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

I would say here something that was heard from an ecclesiastic of the most eminent degree; ‘That the intention of the Holy Ghost is to teach us how one goes to heaven, not how the heaven goes.’ Galileo Galilei 1615.

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass
