When a stranger came in saying he was ready to drop $30,000 cash on a car, the sales manager and a salesman at Cars 4 You on Detroit's west side were eager to find him something he'd like.

And when he said he'd like to leave his Dodge Durango behind while he test drove a black 2015 Dodge Charger, they simply handed him the keys. The man drove off.

Thirty minutes later, workers at the used car lot on Livernois realized they'd been robbed.

A $21,000 car, gone. And the only insurance on it wouldn't cover theft, just liability.
