    I just had a look via Spyglass for you. It comes back with 63 backlinks, and none of the pages the backlinks come from have any PageRank. Therefore there is nothing there to justify its PR6.
    So in my opinion it is fake.

    From what I've read, Page Rank can come from 301 redirects, but I do not know how to find out if this is the case, or if it's possible to know.

    SEOQuake shows it as PR 4. My Spyglass also shows 63 links, but the damn thing won't finish and it's been over an hour. I don't know if that is because of something weird with the site.

    The domain was registered in Feb. of 2011, so it has some age. The site doesn't look particularly impressive. The first paragraph provides text for a "vasectomy surgeon" in Las Vegas, so... I don't see how it gets PR6 or PR4.

    Fake PR would drop wouldn't it, or can you just redirect it. Hmmm I see it used to be some gov/charity thing back in 011, but the backlink profile doesn't show me anything :/

    You can fake PR by canonicalising the domain with the high PR to a newly purchased domain, trick I used once.

    Looks fake to me, looking at the pages and links, and there is a dot net version of the same name redirecting to a .cc.

    Not sure if they are related.

    If it is indeed fake PR, then it will be gone by the next PR update.
