comment Is it possible for a normal user to flag a Wikipedia edit as potential vandalism?
But it's all academic at this point, since you removed the offending text ;)

I know, but my theory is that there is a remote possibility that it wasn't vandalism, and that the edit was claiming that the article text was copied from an article or something by Fawad Joya, and I didn't want to just lose that information if that was the case, and I didn't want to take the time to actually determine whether Fawad Joya actually wrote the text and format it as a proper citation, so I made the simplest change I could that marked it as potentially spurious information.

Disregard my last comment: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Dubious specifically says it should not be used for unsourced statements

My use case is that I'm not sure it's vandalism, so the {{dubious}} template (mentioned in How to respond to vandalism - for beginners) is appropriate.
