New to Fiverr - received a strange message (scam?)

Hi, I just joined and published my gigs today. I’ve checked other similar topics but I haven’t seen this sort of message come up as a scam. Someone named Robert Woods apparently set me up for an online interview with the HR rep at Cox as an administrative assistant? They are asking me to make a gmail account to be hired for a full / part time position. I just responded that I am not interested in a permanent position and reported the account and message as scam. It was filled with weird formatting errors as well. Just a heads up in case anybody else is dealing with the same issue!

Yes you did the right thing by reporting them immediately and blocking them as well.
