A credit card company claims a Galveston County resident owes it more than $12,000 for charges she accrued on her credit card.

Steamboat Partners filed a lawsuit July 31 in the Galveston County Court at Law No. 2 against Patsy J. Rice. 

In its complaint, Steamboat Partners alleges Rice had a credit card with Wells Fargo. Rice made $11,298.39 worth of charges on her card, but failed to make the required monthly payments, according to the complaint.

Wells Fargo eventually sold the debt to Steamboat, which says Rice now owes it the principal sum of $11,298.39, plus $1,079.54 in finance charges.

In addition to the money it claims Rice owes it, Steamboat seeks post-judgment interest at the highest legal rate, $1,500 in attorney's fees, costs and other relief the court deems just.

It is being represented by attorney Laura E. Calhoun of the Law Office of Laura Calhoun in Plano.
