At the address they listed on their site is Fire Station #2 for the Pocatello Fire Department (See http://www.pocatello.us/fire/fire_tours.htm).

I've sent an email to the Idaho Transportation Department, Division of Motor Vehicles Dealer Licensing, if they come back to say that they are not licensed then we may have enough evidence to get the website shut down.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Now the same domain name is going by BL Autos as follows:

Dealer Name: BL Autos (See also OM Autos).
Phone Number: (208) 904-2528
Physical Address: 390 Victory Street, Twin Falls, ID 83301
Website: http://www.omautos.com
Listing Sites Used: Self Hosted (Same template as steinautos.com, pd-cars.com, rush-motors.com, qmotorsales.com, olautos.com, pauljuniorcars.com, adamscarstore.com, junior-motors.com (some of the templates changed or the sites are now down).

The address they listed does not exist. The closest is Victory Avenue as oppose to Victory Street which shows only a distribution warehouse and not a dealership. Furthermore, they are not a licensed Idaho car dealer which can be verified by calling the Idaho Transportation Department, Division of Motor Vehicles Dealer Licensing office at (208) 334-8681 or emailing [email protected].

BL Autos (aka OM Autos) is just another overseas scam attempting to get you to wire them money for cars they do not have. See http://www.kmvt.com/news/local/Fake-Dea ... 51173.html for a recent story on this fraud.
