This happened to me tonight too. I have an ad on craigslist and this guy replied that he was interested but wanted to make sure it was the exact thing he was looking for, and gave me a link to see the item he wanted. I usually never click links, but since my item is made in different models, I thought it was a legitimate question and I clicked the link. Plus the scam emails I've gotten from craigslist ads have all come from Yahoo addresses, and this one was AOL.

Anyway, I did a search on Google to try to find out if I just screwed up my new computer by clicking that link, and that is how I found this forum.

I found the exact same link via a craiglist response to one of my ads. I also clicked on the link only to be redirected to the "thehezone.com" which had a video link requiring the installation of a specific video player (which I did not install). I wonder if that is the whole purpose of this spam email is to promote the installation of the video player? Either way, if anyone has any info regarding this site please let me know.

It is unlikely to be a video player, probably a trojan or spambot.
It is a common problem. Often associated with fake porn sites.
