I have been applying for jobs and have uploaded my resume to public recruiting websites (e.g. www.ziprecruiter.com). The other day I checked my spam folder and found a new message. It was from someone trying to arrange an interview with me. It looked a little like spam and I decided to ignore it. The next day someone leaves a voice mail for me asking if I'm available for an interview. They said the company name very fast and slurred so I couldn't catch it. However, I looked up the phone number in my email and found it matched the email that was marked as spam. I've been trying to return the call but keep getting a voice mail. Here is the email bellow (with personal information changed)

Hello , Fin
I reviewed your resume with my regional director, John Doe, and we feel you have some valuable prior work experience that we wanted to discuss in further detail. I am available to talk with you sometime this week in the morning (excluding Thursday and Friday). Let me know which day works best for you and I will schedule you in for a phone meeting.
Feel free to give me a call or text me at
555-86 <tel:555-223-1142> 7-8641

I found John Doe on LinkedIn and they seemed legit, but I couldn't find another name. Also when I called and got the voicemail it only said the person's name but not the company. What should I do next? Can anyone tell if this is some kind of scam? Gmail's filter certainly thought so.
NOTE! The phone number appeared malformed, like a hyperlink to another phone number inside the one presented. This leads me to believe something is up.
