A scammer stole $20,000 from prospective car buyers when meeting up somewhere within the confines of the 60th Precinct where he claimed he would sell them the car on Feb. 4. 

The victims told police they gave the thief the money and he immediately got into the drivers seat and started driving away around 8:15 pm and one of the victims jumped on the hood of the car to stop the crook but fell off and injured their leg.
