Beaumont men accused of refusing to pay student loan
Two Beaumont men are being sued for allegedly failing to repay nearly $18,000 in student loans.
The National Collegiate Student Loan Trust 2007-4 filed a lawsuit Aug. 19 in Jefferson County District Court against Ryan Shields and Harumi Nover.
Shields allegedly borrowed money from Union Federal Savings Bank to attend Northwest Vista College with Nover guaranteeing the loan. According to the complaint, the original loan provided a deferral period after which Shields would begin making payments. The lender says Shields and Nover have both failed to repay the borrowed money as promised.
National Collegiate contends Shields and Nover defaulted on the loan, leaving an unpaid balance of more than $17,800.
Shields and Nover are accused of breach of contract and are being asked to pay the outstanding balance on the loan plus interest, court costs and attorney fees.
The National Collegiate Student Loan Trust 2007-4 is represented by attorney Michael J. Scott of Carrollton.
