Meg Corrigan, an 18-year-old from Scotland, was recently on "holiday" (oh those Europeans!) with her friends in Zante, Greece, and apparently they were playing it pretty fast and loose with the safety of their personal belongings. Because on the bus home, she discovered a video on her phone that had been recorded by a complete stranger who broke into her hotel room. But don't worry, he just wanted to help!

In the message, he warns her, some might say ironically, about people breaking in to her room. She shared the video on Twitter, where it went viral:

"In zante a random boy came into our room cause it wis open whilst everyone wis on the balcony and left this video on docs phone, am howling," wrote Corrigan.

In the video, the "random boy" urges Corrigan and her friends to "be more careful with your stuff," and adds: "If I can come in here anyone can."

He's not wrong per se. So, who is this mysterious stranger, with his somewhat unorthodox methods of "helping" strangers stay safe? According to Twitter, his name is Lloyd Burden.

Lloyd, you're clearly a good samaritan. But maybe just leave a note under the door next time?

Well it turns out, he'd already tried more conventional methods. "The boy that videoed himself had been shouting at us the full week to shut our doors because it was unsafe, but mine and my friends doors were right in front of each other so we knew we would be alright," she told The Sun. "He must have just came in when we were all on the balcony and left us this."

Luckily, she wasn't mad at all. "Me and my friends were all in stitches," she said. Phewy. Maybe she'll lock her room in the future?
