UPDATE: I emailed the Credit Union with this information and received this reply:
You were absolutely correct. This is a very big scam. We have been getting calls all week. They are using all different numbers to call back on. Tell everyone you know about this, so that they will not give out any information.

Just got a message on my cell phone that says:
Regional Healthcare FCU Alert:
Your Card has been Deactivated.
Please contact us at 318-965-6734 to Activate your Card.
Regional Healthcare Federal Credit Union is affiliated with Christus Schumpert, so I went to their website. They have this message up, so this must be an ongoing scam:
FRAUD ALERT!!! DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR ACCOUNT OR DEBIT CARD NUMBER-EVEN IF YOU RECEIVE A PHONE CALL TELLING YOU TO! THESE ARE FRAUDULENT CALLS!
Since I don’t have an account there, I was sure it was a scam. This seems to verify it.
I will pass it on.
Please, if you do have an account there don't fall for this. Their website assures everyone that they will never send text messages dealing with your account, or ask for your debit card number.
