Apple Scam Calls 2020 - Suspicious Activities in iCloud Account

After receiving the Apple scam call below, I spoke with a man claiming to be James Lee with apple support badge number CVE 2019/8570. He claimed multiple hackers were accessing our account around the world. He wanted to know if I had access to my phone and computer so I could log into the Apple Secure Server. If I did, James Lee claimed he could stop the hackers. I hung up on him. This is a scam and if you have received such calls, please do the same and hang up.
