No, unfortunately.  Your inventory is set by default to ask your approval for any notecards or LMs that it receives, but that doesn't extend to objects.  As you are aware, of course, an item that just sits in your inventory can't cause any harm.  After all, your inventory is really nothing more than a lookup table that tells the SL asset servers which items you have permission to use.  As far as your viewer is concerned, the only things "in" your inventory are UUIDs and permission flags.  If you find something unfamiliar, you can always do exactly as you have -- delete the item and then purge your Trash file. 

The only time you have a risk is when you rez the item. Even then, an object still needs your explicit permission to debit your account, so you are pretty safe unless you agree to give it permission.  When in doubt, it can be smart to rez a mysterious object in a no-script zone.  I maintain a small (4m x 4m) parcel for exactly that reason.

If you Mute the person, all inventory offers from that person will be automatically refused.

You can also try setting yourself in Busy (Unavailable) mode.  ALL inventory offers will then be automatically refused.  I don't recommend this.  It's way too easy to forget to disable it and then lose something you buy on the Marketplace or from a store in world, or a genuine gift from a friend.

By the way, the Green Lanterns (an anti-griefer group) has reported that this object is NOT a scam.  However, at least one other group I'm a member of thinks it IS a scam.  You can safely test it yourself.  Rez or wear the object.  If it produces a warning message saying it's requesting permission to take $L from you, simply do NOT click Accept to that notice.  Detach and delete the object.  On the other hand, if you don't get that warning message, it's OK and the object is safe to use.
