I have received several phone calls from Apple regarding my IPad iCloud account. They said my iCloud account has beef compromised. The number they called from is(###) ###-####and wonder if it is legit or a scam before I give them any information. I hung up on them the first time and now they just keep calling and I won't answer. Any suggestions?

Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

They are SCAM calls. Don't do anything they say or provide them any info. If you are keep getting them, tell them you will file a comlaint against them. There are also scam emails as well. You may get them as well. Always ignore these kinds of calls and messages.

Since you got the call, you should immediately change your Apple ID password. You can change it from the official site, here --> https://iforgot.apple.com/

You should also enable the Apple's two step verification security measure. This will protect your Apple ID from hacking. Refer this article --> https://support.apple.com/en-in/HT204915

If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to ask.

Note : This is not my final answer. I strive to provide Excellent service or 5 star service. If you feel you've received anything less or if you are not satisfied or if my solutions didn't work, please don't rate me bad or poor or ok as it will badly affect my job here. Instead of rating, please let me know by replying in here and I will stay with you and try my best to help you until you are fully satisfied or the issue is resolved.

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
