There are many approaches. The one I favor is to do an ls with inode
numbers then do a find on that inode.

  ls -il

The first column will list the inode.  Next do a find on that inode:

 find . -inum 123456 -maxdepth 1 -exec ls -l {} \;

If the file matches, just pass rm to find:

 find . -inum 123456 -maxdepth 1 -exec rm {} \;
