Came into my email, stating that I have a refund due from the IRS and to "click onto their web address to forward address me to them, to receive my refund. Some spelling errors and they started of the greeting with "Hi"…if really is the IRS, they would darn well know who I am and my name in the greeting. Plus message ID had "@inc.com"

I received a phone message that said they are IRS.G0V and to contact 1(818) 233-8255. I had difficulty understanding what they were saying, but the message was short however. I called it back and it took 4 times to actually be able to talk to a real individual who said they were trying to contact me and that I was a criminal. That was all I could understand because I am hard of hearing. My roommate called back twice and he had trouble understanding what they were say also. But basically my roommate said, "Why are you calling my roommate?" the guy hung up immediately. These people are harassing me and I would them to stop!
