LegitScript Releases Five-Part Blog Series on the BestKenko Internet Pharmacy Network
Date:11/14/2016

PORTLAND, Oregon, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LegitScript, LLC, a leading source of information on internet merchants, announced that it has published the first of a five-part investigative blog series about the largest internet pharmacy network targeting Japan, available at legitscript.com/blog. The internet pharmacy network, commonly known as "BestKenko," consists of hundreds of websites selling pharmaceuticals to Japan.

LegitScript monitors the activities of merchants in the online pharmacy, supplement, gambling, tobacco and other high risk sectors, and works closely with banks, payment providers, search engines and e-commerce platforms to mitigate risk and regulatory liability. The company counts Japanese regulatory authorities among its clientele, and performs merchant and e-commerce platform monitoring in 20 languages.

"Websites operated by BestKenko are marketed to appear as if the medicines are shipped by licensed doctors or legitimate pharmacies," said John Horton, LegitScript CEO. "However, Japanese residents deserve to know the actual source of the drugs." Horton said that the series maps the relationships of the corporations and individuals that operate the internet pharmacy scheme.

According to LegitScript, the BestKenko network is composed of more than 800 websites that direct users to a handful of flagship websites such as bestkenko.com, which is visible only in Japan, but appears as "under construction" to the rest of the globe. The blog series explores the legality of BestKenko's operations, who operates the websites, and which entities the merchant relies on to keep its business running. The series examines key BestKenko domain name and business registrations, pharmaceutical suppliers, sponsoring domain name registrars, and other partners.

The first piece in the blog series, "Is The Largest Internet Pharmacy Targeting Japan Illegal?" is available at legitscript.com/blog. The series is simultaneously being released in Japanese and English.
