Did they start the car after the oil was removed? If so not sure why someone would do that. If they started the car after the oil was added this is normal, its needs to be started to circulate the oil thru the engine.

the oil was really thin.. And very black. I guess they tried to get most of the oil out to put new oil in? The motor will turn but it's not catching or something.. Am I screwed?! Is there anything you'd recommend?

Changing your oil and not starting are 2 separate issues. But if what you say is true, that they tried starting it before the oil was in, that might be an issue. Cranking and not turning over can be a sign of low or no fuel pressure. Can you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key? How is your battery voltage? Did they touch anything else? We won't know.
