Juan Natal met someone on a street to sell a laptop and found himself looking down the barrel of a gun.
This is just the latest case a deal with a stranger starting online turning violent.
"Then I hear footsteps running up behind me. All of a sudden I have a gun pointing at me," said Juan Natal.
After posting an ad on Craigslist, Juan says he'd met a woman on East 80th in Cleveland to sell a small laptop.
He'd heard all about people killed responding to Craigslist ads and other Internet ad scams so he says he brought a friend along. That didn't matter because the so-called buyers still tried to rob him.
"I've heard of stuff like this. I just never thought it would happen to me," said Natal.
Cleveland police eventually arrested James Mosely. Cuyahoga County prosecutors say he is already facing charges for another street hold up.
