Safely view websites that may be harmful

I posted a car on Craigslist the other day and since then I've been getting nothing but scam emails that contain links the people want me to click. I know not to clink the links and that it's a scam, but nonetheless I am still curious as to what these people are up to. Is there a way to safely view a website that I know may be malicious? I know I could create a VM machine but was looking for another method that may be a little quicker than that.

Boot from a linux live CD and browse the suspect sites from it. The odds are overwhelmingly high that the malware is targeting windows so you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
