Mack has other worries


Louisville men's basketball coach Chris Mack has other things to worry about than his team's potential to be the nation's top-ranked team next week. After Duke's loss to Stephen F. Austin last night, the second-ranked Cardinals are in prime position to become the number one ranked team next week with a victory over Western Kentucky (WKU) Nov. 29. 

Despite the potential of becoming the nation's top ranked team, Mack has other things to worry about. He shared his recent experience with credit card fraud.

The Cardinals tip off against WKU in Nashville at 5:04 p.m. Friday. Here is Mack's complete answer:

“All the other stuff, them being an in-state, the possibility of being a number one, I don’t worry about any of that. Here’s what I worry about in the past 24 hours. This is being probably too real and too serious. There was a fraud charge on my VISA card last night. It was from Cigars, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I don’t know what that means, I have never bought a cigar. I don’t know if it was a different name for a parent company. It had a charge of $222.75 cents. I called US Bank, and I said ‘what is the issue?’ This lady Janet, she does a great job. She told me ‘Coach, that was on your card, not your wife’s’ because we have a split account. We share an account. I said ‘I know I didn’t do that.’ She was like ‘would you like to file a fraud charge?’ and I’m like ‘well, I guess’ because I don’t want to have it taken out of my account. And so, we did that. But you have to shut your credit card down, right. So on the way home last night from Lainey’s basketball game, it’s late, like 8:30, she did a good job in her scrimmage. She starts to order door dash through my account. She goes to put in her order for Chick-Fil-A and we are all going to eat Chick-Fil-A, really good by the way. They say to her, the phone says, ‘reject.’ I have to get my credit card while driving, I know that’s not safe, I have to go through my iPhone settings and go to Door Dash and do all this, I give her a new card. So she puts in a whole new card. Thank heavens we got it right before the time because Door Dash doesn’t deliver past 10 o’clock and the store closes. But we got it. So then I’m sitting there planning practice today and I get an email. It says ‘my iTunes account is now shut down because of this credit card.’ So I had to go through my settings, I don’t know if you guys have iPhones. It’s really difficult, you have to go back and forth. Email. It was a real hassle. So that’s two accounts I had to change the credit card information. Now I have gotten the Courier Journal, that’s subscription is about to get canceled. So I have spent more time thinking about that than us being number one in the country.”
