About Us

We're on a mission to make the internet and payments ecosystems safer and more transparent.

An Internet Built on Trust

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.

Powered by People

Based in Portland, Oregon, LegitScript was founded in 2007 in response to the proliferation of dangerous counterfeit pharmaceuticals sold on the internet.

Our offerings have 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 to do business, and that bringing this vision to life requires the talent of mission-driven people.
