Scam??

I got an invite to apply request today from a guy named **Edited for community guidelines**. He gave me this website **Edited for community guidelines** and just seems to be trying to scam people. Or maybe I'm being paranoid... I'm not sure. The website seems to be fake and could have easily been made by wix in an hour. None of the email or social links point anywhere. Then he emailed me this:

 

**Edited for community guidelines**

 

Any tips or thoughts? How do I report this if it is a scam?

 

Thanks!

This has a stink to it. 
I would steer clear - there are plenty of other jobs.
