WOT and LegitScript Partner to Protect Web Users from Rogue Online Pharmacies

Web of Trust (WOT), the leading community-based safe surfing tool, and LegitScript, the world's largest online pharmacy verification program, have announced a partnership to help WOT users identify trustworthy prescription drug websites and avoid fraudulent ones.

The cooperation between the two companies will give WOT users an additional layer of security by identifying Internet pharmacies that are appropriately certified to sell prescription drugs. LegitScript will also supply information about prescription drug and pharmacy websites designated as "rogue" (acting in violation of drug safety laws, such as the sale of counterfeit drugs.) Visitors to LegitScript.com will be able to add their ratings and comments about legitimate and illicit Internet prescription drug websites easily to the WOT reputation scorecards.

Vesa Perala, CEO of WOT Services said, “WOT aims to boost trust on the web while protecting our 11 million users from sites that are untrustworthy, unreliable and possibly illegal. LegitScript helps our community to identify trustworthy prescription drug websites and avoid fraudulent ones.”

John Horton, President of LegitScript.com said, "Internet users are a tremendously important source of information about whether a website meets our standards, or is acting fraudulently and unsafely. Partnering with companies like WOT gives our users an additional voice in helping to keep the Internet safe."
