A couple of the Klez variants masquerade as Klez.e removal tools. 

Subject: Worm Klez.E Immunity 
Klez.E is the most common world-wide spreading worm. It's very dangerous by 
corrupting your files. Because of its very smart stealth and anti-anti-virus 
technic,most common AV software can't detect or clean it.We developed this 
free immunity tool to defeat the malicious virus. You only need to run this 
tool once,and then Klez will never come into your PC.

NOTE: Because this tool acts as a fake Klez to fool the real worm,some AV 
monitor maybe cry when you run it. If so,Ignore the warning,and select 
'continue'. If you have any question,please mail to me. 

Never trust a random exe (or any script for that matter) in your inbox.
