About LegitScript

At LegitScript, we believe in the potential of the commercial internet to connect people to the products and services they’re looking for. We’re here to help by supporting legitimate business activities and by giving cybercriminals nowhere to hide — even in the internet’s darkest corners.

Our Vision

We envision a commercial internet that makes life better for everyone, where individuals and businesses can make informed decisions based on accurate information about who they are working with and what they’re buying.

That’s why we strive to be the most trusted advisers to inform businesses, governments, and the public about which commercial entities are legitimate, legal, and trustworthy — and which are not.

How We Work

LegitScript makes the internet and online payments safer for legitimate businesses and their customers by uniting comprehensive big data and unparalleled human expertise to weed out criminal activity and unethical practices.We work where the need is greatest: in highly regulated and complex sectors, including transaction laundering detection, pharmaceuticals, online gambling, and more.

Our work across sectors — and across the visible and “dark” web — leaves us with a uniquely multidimensional view of the entire compliance ecosystem. That’s how we’re able to provide unparalleled insights from all industries and angles, empowering businesses and governments to understand what they’re up against and act accordingly.

LegitScript is trusted by the world’s largest search engines, e-commerce platforms, payment companies, and regulatory agencies in countries around the world. That trust means everything to us.

I love that my job is a puzzle piece to a bigger goal of creating a safer space for vulnerable populations.

Our Approach to Cybercrime

Online crime is big business. Driven by a mix of small-time shady characters and massive, international networks, cybercrime causes annual damages in the trillions of dollars. And while these criminal transactions may happen in “virtual” spaces, they take a very real toll on victims’ lives.

Combating cybercrime at this scale begins by understanding how it works and tracking it across the commercial internet, the dark web, and the payments systems that tie them together. It takes insights derived from massive quantities of data and expert analysts who know how to put all of the pieces together.

That’s what it takes, so that’s what we do.

Powered by People

LegitScript was founded in 2007 in response to the proliferation of dangerous counterfeit pharmaceuticals on the commercial internet. We’ve grown and changed a lot since then, but we’ve always stayed true to our core beliefs: that the internet should be a safe place for people to do business and that people — human experts — were essential to bringing that vision to life.

Today, our large and growing team is working hard to do just that.
