Dealer Name: Golden Autos
Phone Number: (317) 682-0288
Physical Addresses Used: 506 East Summit, Crown Point, IN 46307
Website(s) Used:
Listing Sites Used: Self Hosted

Typical non-dealer advertising vehicles they do not possess in order to get you to wire them money with which they will disappear. You can verify Golden Autos is not a legitimate dealer simply by calling Indiana Secretary of State Auto Dealer Services Division at (317) 234-7190 or via email to [email protected]

Furthermore, the Crown Point is in Northern Indiana with area code 219 while this fraud used a Google Voice area code of (317) which is central Indiana (Indianapolis). They used the same exact template as more than close to ten other sites in the past few months.

Finally, the location (see photo) is a vacant warehouse and is not zoned to allow for a car dealership.

Golden Autos changed their phone number to (219) 488-2995 (Google Voice). This corrects their previously attempt to advertise as being in area code 219 but having an Indianapolis (area code 317) phone number.

They remain an overseas scam with no actual cars to sell. Buyer beware. Vehicle Identification Numbers they list for sale on their site include:
