Had a very suspicious call at 5am this morning.

Started off with someone ringing the bell, trying to buzz through on the videophone. I was half asleep so ignored it thinking it was kids messing around.

After numerous attempts I assumed they'd given up only to hear someone banging loudly and repeatedly on my flat door (no idea how he'd gotten into the flat).

Went down and answered - big bloke with a package asking if someone called Ray/Roy lived here. I said no, and he repeately asked me about this person. In the end, he headed off.

Has anyone else had such a call? The fact it was a delivery at 5am - and for a person who'd never lived in this flat made me extremely suspicious.
