A man has been caught on camera running towards then throwing himself onto a car which clearly came to a stop before he fell upon it. The man subsequently fell back onto the road, whereupon a supposed bystander rushed forward, from the direction the man was coming from, coming to the aid of the collapsed man.

The incident reportedly occurred around 5.45am on 5 Nov.

The videos, posted by Facebook user Jacky Ang, has gone viral with over half a million views in total.

A driver moving along Farmway also fell victim to the audacious scam in June this year:
