One of the three big credit unions is warning about a new scam that's trying to get your credit card number.

TransUnion says many customers have received phony text messages and voicemails the past few days.

Callers claim to represent a bank that has canceled the consumer's credit card.

The customers are told to call a number and provide their 16-digit credit card number, plus other personal information.

TransUnion says these are fraudulent calls. If you receive a message like this, don't give out personal information over the phone. You should check with your bank directly. You should also not call a phone number they give you, but rather look up the phone number on the back of your card and give them a call directly.
