About LegitScript

Making the internet and payment ecosystems safer and more transparent.

The anonymity of the internet affords criminals, brand infringers, and other miscreants the ability to hide who they are and what they are doing. For consumers, it means a less safe, less transparent environment. For businesses, it means potential losses from fraud and bad customers, as well as increased regulatory and reputational risk.

Our Vision

We aim to leave the internet a better place for future generations. We believe the internet can be a place where people find truth. We think individuals and businesses have a right to know who’s behind a website, product, or service in order to be empowered and make informed decisions.
Our vision is for an internet built on trust. That's why we strive to be the most trusted advisors to inform businesses, governments, and the public about which commercial entities are legitimate, legal, and trustworthy — and which are not.

Our Work

We help companies of all sizes keep their services legal and safe for consumers. To do this, LegitScript combines big data with the world’s leading team of experts skilled in highly regulated and complex sectors, including transaction laundering detection, pharmaceuticals, online gambling, and more.
Our multidimensional view across the entire compliance ecosystem provides unique insights from all industries and angles, empowering businesses and governments to stay at the forefront of emerging high-risk trends. That’s why LegitScript is trusted by the world’s largest search engines, e-commerce platforms, payment companies, and regulatory agencies in 100 countries and more than 15 languages around the world.

The LegitScript Story

LegitScript was founded in May 2007, and it’s been a great ride ever since. From our coffeeshop days, where we had little more than an idea, to the present day, where a team of over 100 in Portland (Oregon) work hard to make cybercriminals’ lives difficult, we’ve tried to stay true to our core belief: that we can do something to make the internet a safer, more transparent, and more independent place than we found it.
