* A played-for-laughs variant appeared in "The Power of the Press," in ''Mad House Comics Digest'' #5. A syndicate member pretending to be a college professor handed a ditzy female character a ''loudly ticking'' package intended for one of the other characters, who'd written an expose on said syndicate's involvement in betting on college sports. She accidentally tripped on a broom, sending it flying into a sink full of dishwater.

* In the film ''An Eye For An Eye'', the villain commits his second murder when he easily gains access to the house when delivering groceries. The cruel irony of this is that this is his actual job, but he's clearly been using it to scope out potential victims.

* ''Film/ThreeDaysOfTheCondor'' opens with a CIA station being wiped out by three assassins. As the station is protected by CCTV cameras, locked doors and a guard � even the receptionist has a gun in the drawer -- the killers get inside by sending in a man dressed as a postman. The place gets regular deliveries of books so this doesn't seem strange. The postman killer tries the same trick on the protagonist later on, but this time he's ready.

* On ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' a hitman poses as a delivery guy bringing in bottled water. The water jugs actually contain chemicals that when allowed to mix create a powerful bomb. The guy was even smart enough to return the stolen water truck so the bottled water company thought that they were the victim of a joy rider and did not report the incident to the police.
