Marco informed that he listed the Mercedes coupe on Auto Trader and the through the post someone contacted him to know about the vehicle. The owner did not have a license plate or insurance for the car and agreed to meet the prospective buyer in a parking lot. He said there were two men who came to meet him and wanted to test drive the GLW 63 S, though he did not allow them to do so. However, he allowed one of them to sit behind the wheels with the engine of the car running. Marco was standing next to the open driver's door when he stepped after receiving a call.

Within a moment, the person behind the steering shut the door and sped away followed by the other individual who ran to his own vehicle and escaped from the scene. The owner said that he was with these persons only for around 10 minutes. People came to his aid following the incident when he was having a panic attack. The local officials have recorded the incident and are investigating it. Since the owner had no insurance, he will not be able to file a claim in order to get some of his lost money.
