The Valley Isle Community Federal Credit Union on Maui is warning customers of a reported phone scam targeting members.

The scam involves an automated phone recording that tells recipients their VIC FCU account has been compromised.  The recording then prompts the person to reveal their ATM and Debit account card numbers.

Credit Union officials say the calls started at around 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 17, 2011.

The credit union also reports non-members have been receiving these calls as well.
