    Yes, because QRZ? (with the question mark) means; "Who is calling me?" I'm not sure I'd call it syntax - its simply the assigned meaning, most of the Q codes without a ? question mark are a statement. With the question mark they turn it into a question.

    So you knew someone was calling you (you heard him sending your c/s), but you didn't know who it was that was calling you.

    I've not heard QRZ on its own used by Hams but I did hear a few times on Ship/Shore stuff when for example one ship( eg gbtt for example) was calling a shore station (eg gxo ) and you were in comms with the shore station he was calling, so you send ' gxo de gkyu qrz gbtt k, hoping that gxo would stop making a tea and listen to his radio (lol).

    Scrutinize your fist. Record and listen if necessary. Somebody may be picking on you.

    Wow, shades of "Play Misty for Me". Ya think it's a stalker? How about recording it for us and posting it somewhere.

    You are being harassed by someone whose knowledge of code is limited to repeat what he / she receives - hence undocumented alien.
    Do not despair, we will build space wall soon.

    Heh. If it happens again and I have the presence of mind I'll grab my phone and get a recording.
