Why have I got a reply from someone I did not contact?

I am new to peopleperhour and have posted my first message. It was intended for a specific service provider and I did not tick the box to make it public. But I almost immediately got a response from someone else. Why?

Hello Paul,

As far as I can see your project is public and not private. You have the following options when creating a project:

  1. Public
  2. Private
  3. Public after 24 hours

If you want you can Cancel the project by clicking on Cancel and post a similar making it private. By making the project private you will have the option to specifically invite one of your freelancers.

Please review the below-attached picture:
