Delete a file with no name!

No doubt that the file name consists on un-printable characters. You could do:

# ls -lb

An easy way to rename or remove it is to use its inode number from:

# ls -il
# find /path_to_file -xdev -inum -exec rm -i {} ;

If you do this, make sure that you restrict the search for the file by inode number to the filesystem in which the file lives. Inodes are only unique with a filesystem!
