That was a bogus call by a malicious party and not associated with Apple in any way. They cold call and provide fake alerts/popups to try and trick users into allowing them access to their PCs and charging an exorbitant fee for their scam services.

Apple will never call users on their own, and there's no issue with your iCloud account either. Your system is just fine as long as you do not communicate with these parties or allow them access in any way; just ignore these types of calls and emails as they come.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
